My Fellow Churchmen: 

This letter comes to you from our new Diocesan House at Six Forks Road and 
the Belt Line in Raleigh, North Carolina. We have moved in. We are in business. 

At the present time, I have a rug partially rolled up in my office and working 
from a table. We're also handicapped by the change of our address, which brings 
our mail to us slowly and in accumulated bundles. It is, however, a real joy to all 
members of the Diocesan staff, and we find a much happier and creative at- 
mosphere in each of our offices. 

It is our hope that by January 11, when we will dedicate this building at 
3 o'clock in the afternoon following a meeting of the Diocesan Council, that the 
Chapel will be completed and that all of our furniture will be installed. Anyone 
who has built a new building knows that there are many heartaches, but that 
in time the heartaches turn into real joys. 

We are not the only ones who are blessed with new facilities. St. John's Church, 
Charlotte, has just dedicated a new and most adequate church building; Holy 
Comforter Church, Burlington, a spacious and most attractive parish hall; and 
St. Ambrose Church in Raleigh, a completely new church, offices and parish 
house. Also, Emmanuel Church, Southern Pines, has made another first class ad- 
dition to its parish house. St. Mark's Mission in Raleigh, has just acquired new 
property off Route 64, east of Raleigh. Building plans are under way at St. Anne's 
Church in Winston-Salem. Holy Comforter in Charlotte is anticipating an ex- 
pansion of its present facilities. St. Christopher's Church, Charlotte, is well on its 
way toward a new church, which will most satisfactorily serve this growing con- 

St. Augustine's College has recently signed contracts for over a million dollars 
for dormitory space, which will provide quarters for 160 men and 160 women 
students. St. Mary's Junior College has a library under construction that should 
be completed in the near future. Thompson Orphanage has under construction a 
foster home in Goldsboro. The Church of the Redeemer, Greensboro, has plans 
underway for a new church. St. Luke's, Salisbury, and Christ Church, Raleigh, 
are in the process of renovating existing buildings. This is all in addition to new 
rectories which have been purchased in Burlington, Winston-Salem and Durham. 

There are undoubtedly other plans for expansion and construction in the Dio- 
cese, and I apologize if I have overlooked anyone. The above list is, however, 
indicative that as the year 1965 comes to a close, the Church is stirring. It is our 
fervent prayer that these outward and visible signs of expansion and construction 
are symbols of an inward and spiritual growth and a deeper and more courageous 
commitment to Christ. . 

In closing, we invite anyone who may be in Raleigh on January 1 1 to join us 
in the dedication of your Diocesan House at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, which will 
be followed by a tour of the building and a reception. 

Faithfully yours, 

Thomas A. Fraser 

'I Was A Stranger' 

How well do Tar Heel Episcopalians meet the opportunity presented by 
those Sunday visits from strangers? One church in the Diocese had an ex- 
perience recently which it has offered to share with other parishes. 

The rector of the parish received the following letter: 
Dear Mr. Blank: 

"I am writing this letter in hopes that you receive it in the way it is in- 

"Your comments in your sermon this morning regarding being alone in

New Assignment — Effective Janu- 
ary 1, the Rev. Thomas J. C. Smyth, 
rector of Holy Trinity Church at 
Greensboro, will leave his present post 
to become Episcopal chaplain for col- 
lege work in Greensboro. With offices 
at St. Mary's House on the campus of 
the University at Greensboro, Mr. 
Smyth will also work with students at 
Guilford College and Greensboro Col- 
lege. Mr. Smyth served as rector of 
Good Shepherd, Rocky Mount, before 
going to Greensboro. Born in Belfast, 
Ireland in 1919, he was educated at 
Onondage Valley Academy in Syra- 
cuse, N. Y., Trinity College in Hart- 
ford, Conn., Elon College here in North 
Carolina and at the School of Theology 
in Sewanee, Tenn. Mr. Smyth, dean 
of the Northeast Convocadian, has 
served on the Standing Committee and 
Executive Committee of the Diocese 
and with parishes in Reidsville, Leaks- 
ville, Milton and High Point. 

Bulletins — Most of the November 
bulletins (because of the printer's 
deadline we work a full month be- 
hind) were concerned with Every 
Member Canvasses, bazaar, Congre- 
gational Meetings, and upcoming vestry 
elections. As of December 1 we had 
reports on only one election and noted

Pprycotf — Another note from a St. 
Timothy's, Wilson, bulletin tells us that 
"it is a psychological fact that some- 
times under appropriate circumstances, 
meaninglessness is more arresting 
than a logical, impassioned plea. So 

that bit of meaninglessness is the rec- 
tor's symbolic request that "Parents- 
Fact," placed after an announcement 
of interest to children, but which they'd 
never read in a bulletin." 

In Charlotte — New address for the 
Rev. Starke Dillard and family, now 
in Charlotte as assistant at Christ 
Church, is 2508 Oxford Place. 

Saunders Dies — Burial services for 
the Rev. John Linker Saunders were 
held in Mooresville on November 11. 
Interment was in the Troutman ceme- 
tery. Mr. Saunders celebrated the 65th 
anniversary of his ordination to the 
Diaconate last summer. He was one 
of eleven men who trained privately 
for orders under the Rev. Dr. Fran- 
cis J. Murdoch, then rector of St. 
Luke's Parish, Salisbury. Later, he 
attended the University of North Caro- 
lina at Chapel Hill and Virginia Theo- 
logical Seminary in Alexandria. He 
was married to the former Ellen Vera 
Hanson, who preceded him in death. 
The Rev. Mr. Saunders served 
churches in Washington, D. C, and 
Maryland. He served as rector of the 
Church of St. Jude and the Nativity in 
Philadelphia from 1925 until his re- 
tirement in 1946. At the time of his 
death he was cannonically resident in 
the Diocese of Pennsylvania, though 
he made his home in the log house in 
which he was born on a farm in Ire- 
dell County. There are no immediate

Advent Mission — The Rev. Julien 
Gunn of the Order of the Holy Cross 
conducted a week-long mission at All 
Saints' Church, Concord, in mid-No- 

strange places prompted me to write. 

"A Christian can never be alone in the Lord's House— even if no one 
is there but himself. However, because I know my rector would appreciate 
hearing from a stranger, I am writing this letter. 

"First, let me say — your church is a fine building — as fine a one as I 
have ever seen. Your church music is wonderful as any I have ever heard; 
the offertory anthem could not have been better, and it goes without saying 
that to receive the Holy Communion is perfect. 

"However, I was completely crushed when not one of my brother Episco- 
palians said 'Hello,' or 'Come back.' I almost felt that I was intruding. 

"Being a salesman, it is not new to me to be alone — it is a way of life. 
I am alone each weekday night, and, sometimes, on weekends. But, going 
to Church on Sunday brings me close to my wife and four daughters — we 
are there together. 

"Quite frankly, I do not know if I will mail this letter to you. I do know, 

however, that some Sunday I will return to Holy Trinity Church — then I 

will stand in line with my brother Episcopalians and shake your hand. I 

hope you understand. _. , „ 


The letter was printed in the parish bulletin with the following comment 
from the rector: "The above letter was sent to me by a visitor to our parish. 
I hope each of you will think about the meaning, not just for this man, but 
for anyone who comes here. How do you welcome strangers to your

aware of his community's affectionate 
regard for him when he was honored at 
Civitan Recognition Night late in No- 
vember. Mr. Hartzell, now retired, is 
a charter member of this club. Guest 
speaker for the event was the Rev. 
Jesse Sparks, former rector of Church 
of the Messiah, Rockingham, and now 
of St. Peter's, Charleston, S. C. 

Teacher Cited— Mrs. Hilda F. John- 
son, member of St. Titus Church, Dur- 
ham, was cited by a leading national 
education magazine, The Instructor, 
for a play she wrote for the special 
education class she teaches in a Dur- 
ham school. The magazine published 
the play, based on the classic story 
of the Golden Fleece, together with 
Mrs. Johnson's teaching methods and 
photographs of the class as they pro- 
duced the play. 

Retiring — Christ Church, Charlotte, 
honored Mr. Christopher Thomas upon 
his retirement last month as church 
organist. Adult classes of the church 
gathered for a reception in his honor 
as he retired after 50 years of service 
to churches in the Anglican com- 
munion as organist and choirmaster.

Mary's campus the headquarters staff moved into the sparkling new Diocesan 
House pictured on the cover of this issue. The new location is situated at 201 St. 
Alban's Drive near Raleigh's North Hills Shopping Center. Just off the beltline 
north of downtown Raleigh, the new building is easy to reach from any point in 
the Diocese. The new Diocesan House will be dedicated at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, 
January 11. All members of the diocesan family are invited. A reception in the 
new Executive Council Conference Room will follow the service of dedication 
which will be conducted by Bishop Thomas A. Fraser. The picture above shows

Second Session fa) 



The second of three sessions of the first Lay School of Theology was held 
November 5 through 7. The location of the school is the handsome new Betsy- 
Jeff Penn 4-H Center, located just outside of Reidsville. 

Nearly 100 laymen will attend one or more of the sessions. The invitation to 
register in the school went particularly to the lay readers of the Diocese, but all 
sessions are open to all men of the Diocese. 

The school's curriculum deals primarily with the basic teachings of Christ, 
church history, Holy Scripture and worship. An excellent faculty from among 
the clergy of the Diocese was selected by the Dean of the School, the Rev. 
Charles R. Greene, who is director of program for the Diocese. The men on the 
faculty and their subjects are: 

The Rev. James Beckwith, rector of St. Michael's Church, Raleigh, "Holy 
Scriptures"; the Rev. T. Eugene Bollinger, rector of the Church of the Holy Com- 
forter, Burlington, "Doctrine of the Church"; the Rev. Carl Herman, rector of 
St. Andrew's Church, Greensboro, "The Canons of the Church"; the Rev. Wil- 
liam Hethcock, rector of St. Luke's Parish, Durham, "Church History"; the Rev. 
Moultrie Moore, rector of St. Martin's Church, Charlotte, "The Doctrine of 
Christ"; the Rev. Roderick Reinecke, rector of St. Timothy's Church, Winston- 
Salem, "Parish Administration"; the Rev. Peter Robinson, rector of St. Francis 
Church, Greensboro, "Worship and the Prayer Book"; and the Rev. Thomas J. C. 
Smyth, Episcopal chaplain for college work, Greensboro, "Pastoral Care." 

A Chaplain was in charge of the services for each of the sessions of the school. 
The Rev. Richard Ottaway, chaplain to the colleges in Winston-Salem, was the 
chaplain for the first session. Mr. Greene was scheduled to be the chaplain for the

ay School Held 

second session but due to illness was replaced by tbe Rev. Leland Jamieson, 
assistant director of program for the Diocese. The Rev. Martin Tilson, rector of 
St. John's in Charlotte will be the chaplain for the third session. 

Those men attending all three sessions of the school will be honored at a 
special service on Sunday, April 24, 1966. They will receive a special certificate 
from the Bishop of the Diocese. 

This first School of Theology received a most encouraging reception. Many of 
the laymen have written letters expressing their gratitude over having such a 
school provided for them. This was not an inexpensive school for those attending, 
as each man had to pay $16 for each session. It also meant that each man had to 
give up three weekends from his family and work. 

In the years to come, the Diocese hopes to make this school available an- 
nually to the adults of the Diocese. It can serve many purposes as well as many 
people. Particularly, it can become a place for real spiritual growth and learning, 
especially for those in responsible positions in their parishes, according to Mr. 

'In many of our smaller churches, it is impossible to have an adult class. 
Therefore, it is hoped that this Lay School of Theology will help the adults in 
such parishes and missions," says Mr. Greene. 

"It is hoped that the Lay School of Theology will become a very important 
aspect in the life of this Diocese and one which will contribute concretely and 
specifically annually to the religious growth and nurture of the adults of the 


Panama Conference Provec 

Fifty-six parishes and missions of the Diocese of North Carolina were represented at a conference on mission at the 
Church of the Holy Family in Chapel Hill recently. Over 200 delegates, representing vestries, women's groups, and youth 
groups, spent the day considering the problems of the Church's mission in Panama. Panama and North Carolina are 
companion dioceses. Keynote speaker at "Panama Day" was Joseph S. Farland of Washington, former ambassador to 
Panama and a lay reader of the church. Ambassador Farland in a forceful address urged closer companionship between 
Panama and North Carolina. He specifically called for the Church to develop a "Teaching Corps for Christ" as a means 
of developing vocational skills in Panama. He also urged wider use of the United Thank Offering, suggesting that men of 
the church should use this spiritual resource, too. Panama Day was sponsored by the Department of Overseas Mission of 
the Diocese with the Rev. Loren B. Mead as chairman. The department premiered its newly-produced film-strip,

"Panama: Invitation to Interdependence." Other tools introduced at the conference included a joint prayer calendar for 
North Carolina and Panama and a list of missionary projects in Panama, both of which were developed cooperatively 
between the dioceses. Plans were announced for the "Bishop's Mission Tour," a two-week visit to Panama led by Bishop 
Thomas A. Fraser, Jr., and Mrs. Fraser. Also on the program of the conference were three University professors who 
have background for understanding of Panama. They are: Dr. Harold Bierck, professor of Latin American history; Dr. 
John Martz, assistant professor of political science; and Dr. David Basile, acting chairman of the Department of Geog- 
raphy. The Rev. Mr. Mead, when asked if the conference had been successful, said: "The department was pleased with 
the response to the conference and the enthusiasm of the participants, but the real test is yet to come. Our hope was that 
the conference would stimulate individuals and parishes to participate more actively in the world-wide mission of the 
church. If that happens, the conference will have been a success."

expedition called for greatest courage 
and dedication. Six families number- 
ing 32 people began a conference on a 
Friday evening under the leadership 
of the Rev. Daniel McCaskill. The 
conference lasted through Sunday din- 
ner. Each family did their own cooking 
and brought their own provisions. The 
program was rather informal. There 
were services of worship, periods of 
discussion for the adults, and nature 
walks and projects for the children. 
While the facilities were a little too 
primitive, the concensus was that the 
idea had great possibilities. 

The St. Francis Family Fair was a 
most happy occasion. Each family was 
asked to bring displays showing either 
their hobbies or something representa- 
tive of the way in which they made a 
living. It was most amazing to see the 
variety of life represented by the par- 

A Masterpiece 

of Beauty and Color 

The beautiful rose window of the 
Cathedral of Notre Dame, a work of 
infinite beauty and splendor, is per- 
haps the masterpiece of all art glass 
windows. Built in the Thirteenth Century, 
it stands today unsurpassed in beauty and 
excellence of workmanship. If a world-wide 
search were made for a monumental ma- 
terial approaching the beauty of the as- 
sembled colors of the famous Rose Window, 
such material would be found in 


'The Silk of the Trade" 

It is found, also, that the 
beautiful colors of Winnsboro 
Blue Granite come from the 
various crystals it contains, 
which are identical in substance 
to many of the finest of preci- 
ous stones and jewels of the or- 
der of the amethyst and moon- 
stone. When the surface of this 
granite — which is a composite 
of these actual precious stone 
crystals — is highly polished, all 
the scintillating beauty and 
color of these jewels become 

Winnsboro Blue Granite is 
most lasting because it is com- 

posed of the most durable min-

Like other high quality ma-

do not possess its durable quali-

Tops With Campers 

The Church of the Messiah at 
Mayodan had the highest enrollment 
of any mission represented at Vade 
Mecum this past summer, Camp Man-

Commenting on this accomplish- 
ment, the Rev. Carl E. Jones, rector 
at the Church of the Messiah, had 
this to say: 

"We are real proud of this program 
here at Messiah, for we offer to every 
child in the community who wants to 
go to camp at Vade Mecum a 50 per 
cent scholarship. This is a growing 
thing and we have a host of organi- 
zations and interested people who are 
helping us with this," Mr. Jones said.

factured products were shown and 
other exhibits included gun collections, 
a bee hive, trophies won in drag rac- 
ing, portrait photography, furniture re- 
finishing, and many many other things. 

The families came for dinner after 
which the Rev. C. Earle B. Robinson 
sang some of his sermons built around 
popular songs. Following dinner peo- 
ple looked at the exhibits and talked 
with exhibitors.

PENICK HOME PROJECT — At work on Chrismons that decorated the Christmas tree at Emmanuel Episcopal Church 
at Southern Pines this season are these Penick Home residents (from left): Mrs. Virginia Berts, Mrs. Sarah Key, Mrs. 
Goldie Hobbs, Miss Alice Carlson, Mrs. Florence Custer, Mrs. Johnsie Hunter, Mrs. Adlai Osborne and Mrs. Donald 
Scott, Penick Home craft instructor. Residents not present when picture was taken are Mrs. Pearl Lauderbach and Miss 
Delia Adams. Volunteers who have given many hours of their time not shown in picture are Mrs. M. B. Gentry, Mrs. 
Eleanor Gibson, Mrs. Nicholas Chaltas, and Mrs. Peter Katavalos, all of Southern Pines. A hundred Chrismons deco- 
rated the Church tree and followed the designs originated by Mrs. Harry Spencer who has given all rights to the Lutheran 
Church in Danville, Va. A great deal of research was done to find the symbols used by the early Christians to identify 
themselves to each other and to indicate their faith to unbelievers also to designate the meeting places of the early church. 
Since the Chrismons were made from sketches drawn and carved from designs found on jewelry, utensils on doors or in 
catacombs many materials are utilized in the making of them. More importantly the symbols served to transmit the faith 
and beliefs to the artist-teacher to the viewer. In this way the inspiration was snared and passed on to the others. Pearl 
beads, gold sequins and braid as well as the flowers used as symbols in the early Christian faith are used in the structure 
of the Chrismon. The most popular symbol of the nativity is the rose, but the lily of the valley symbolizes the purity as the 
daisy does the innocence.

Panama, Episcopal University Center 

The Episcopal University Center is 
the only center of its kind in Latin 
America. It attempts to offer to stu- 
dents a means of cultivating and de- 
veloping both their academic and spir- 
itual life through an active ministry 
and special facilities such as library, 
study rooms, chapel, chaplain and — 
in some cases — even some scholar- 
ship aid. Pray for the Bishop and the 
chaplain that their efforts and minis- 
trations may enable the students to 
think how they may better serve God 
and their country. Pray for the Rector 
of the University and the professors 
that they may with vision, firmness 
and love serve the purposes and func- 
tions of their calling. 

Enfield, Church of the Advent 

The Church of the Advent requests

Panama, San Jose, La Chorrera 

This is a small church 20 miles up 
the InterAmerican Highway from 
Panama City. A mission for three years 
the church has had a resident priest 
since January and is now building a 
church and rectory. The congregation 
is totally Panamanian. It started as a

older people. Pray for the priest and 
the people that this mission may grow 
both in its numbers and in its minis- 
try to the people of the area.

Provides Low Interest Loans: 

Here's Report On Operation 
Of N. C. Church Foundation 

President, N. C. Episcopal 
Church Foundation, Inc. 

The primary objective of the N. C. Episcopal Church Foundation, Inc. is to 
have funds available to make unsecured loans at low interest rates to congrega- 
tions who are trying to provide needed churches, parish houses and rectories 
earlier than they could otherwise have them. The Foundation can accomplish 
this only by preserving its corpus and by making loans for not more than 10 years 
with uniform quarterly repayments of principal. Applications for loans to pro- 
vide supplementary funds are welcome provided they are made by growing con- 
gregations who have (1) limited bank credit, (2) strong local leadership, and 
(3) the desire and ability to meet their commitment as to interest and repay- 
ment. Application and information forms are available at Diocesan Headquarters. 

During the fiscal year ended October 31, 1965, the trustees met twice. At the 
first meeting it was decided to charge off all of the unpaid pledges, most made 
in the mid-1950's and amounting to $86,107.72. There had been no collections 
on them since 1958. Some were vague and indefinite and others were made by 
individuals who had moved out of the Diocese or who had died. To assist church 
treasurers, we began the practice of sending out 30-day advance notices of pay- 
ments due on loans. All loans were adjusted so that the payments of interest and 
principal would be due on the last day of each calendar quarter. 

The Foundation acknowledges with grateful appreciation a bequest under the 
will of Mrs. Sarah Williamson Lamb in the amount of $5,000, 75 percent of 
which has been paid to the Foundation by her executor. 

A financial report is distributed to all trustees at the end of each fiscal quarter. 
This report lists income and disbursements for the quarter as well as the assets of 
the Foundation.

Foundation and its financial status for the years ended October 31, 1965 and

Panamanian nationality and the parish 
faces difficulties of changing language 
from English to Spanish. Older West

assimilated into the life of their adopted 
country. Pray for this, the oldest parish 
in this Missionary District, and pray 
for the success of the growing minis- 
try in Spanish. 

The Mision de San Salvador is part 

of Christ Church Parish, although it 
will probably become a separate mis- 
sion. The Church would like to found 
a "Community Center" here. The older 
West Indians here are facing poverty 
and rapid social change. Pray for them 
in this difficult time, and pray for 
children and young people of West 
Indian descent as they reach to be- 
come "Panamenized."

Trinity Church, Mount Airy 

The Rev. W. E. Pilcher, III, is the 
present rector of Trinity Episcopal 
Church of Mount Airy, North Caro- 

The town's first Episcopalians met 
as early as 1852 in the old Lebanon 
Street Methodist Church building with 
the Rt. Rev. Levi Silliman Ives, then 
bishop of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina, presiding over the gatherings. Sis- 
ters of General J. E. B. Stuart, famous 
Confederate cavalry leader were con- 
firmed here by Bishop Ives. 

Informal Episcopal services were 
held here for years during and after 
the Civil War with the Rev. Mr. 
Daugherty, rector of St. Paul's in Win- 
ston-Salem and his successor, the Rev. 
W. D. Lacy, coming to conduct ser- 
vices in the Methodist, Baptist and Pres- 
byterian buildings. 

In the Spring of 1891 the Rev. 
F. S. Stickney of Greensboro was put 

in charge of a mission here with one 
service being held each month. Ef- 
forts to raise funds for a church build- 
ing were at this time begun. 

William Woodroffe and Sons, who 
held extensive interest in the granite 
quarry, donated stone for the building 
and the late Mrs. Thomas Fawcett 
painted a number of miniatures — one 
of them being of J. Pierpont Morgan 
— proceeds from which sales she con- 
tributed to the church building fund. 
Miss Isabel Graves was also an ar- 
dent worker in soliciting funds for the 

Trinity Episcopal Church, which 
now stands on Main Street, was begun 
in the early Spring of 1896 and the 
first service was held in the new build- 
ing in July, 1896. Ivy was started on 
the outside walls from cuttings brought 
directly from England by O. D. Boy- 
cutt, a friend of the Woodroffe family. 

The building was "consecrated and set 
apart" by the Rt. Rev. Joseph Blount 
Cheshire on the nineteenth Sunday 
after Trinity, October 21, 1900. It is 
worthy of note that all six churches 
standing on Main Street are built from 
granite from the local quarry. 

Not until 1953 did Trinity Church 
become a parish. Since that time 
church membership has increased and 
at present there are 147 communicants 
and 223 baptized members. In 1954, 
under the leadership of the Rev. Mark 
A. Boesser, a parish house was added 
to the original building. There is also 
a rectory on Willow Street. 

Among former ministers who have 
served the church are the Rev. Mssrs. 
J. Reginald Mallett, late retired bishop 
of Northern Indiana; Thomas Simons 
Clarkson, Edwin H. Hurst, E. M. Win- 
borne, T. D. Dean, Edwin B. Jef- 
fress, Jr.,. A. Stratton Lawrence, Joseph

ert E. Merritt, secretary; William E.

Preddy; Thomas Southgate and Peter 
W. Staples. 

It is fair to state that Trinity Church, 
as a building, has been, and is in the 
words of its consecration document 
"dedicated to the Worship and Service 
of Almighty God, the Father, the Son 
and the Holy Ghost, for the adminis- 
tration of His Holy Sacraments, the 
Reading and Preaching of His Holy 
Word, and for the performance of all 
Holy Offices, agreeably to the terms 
of the Covenant of Grace in our Lord 
Jesus Christ, and according to the 
provisions of that Branch of His Holy 
Catholic Church aforementioned." 

It is also valid to state that the 
congregation of this parish has sought 
and ever does seek to be "dedicated 
to the Worship and Service of Almighty 
God" in His World, and especially in 
that part of it where each member 
finds himself. end 

Fred " Woodcut Series First: 

New Diocesan House At Raleigh 
To Display Religious Art Works 

Religious art, sculpture, or wood- 
work will be on exhibition at the new 
Diocesan House at all times. 

The first exhibition will be a wood- 
cut series by Albrecht Durer entitled 
"Revelation." Durer was born in 
Nuremberg, Germany, in 1471, and 
was the son of a goldsmith. His crea- 
tive interests quickly outgrew the limi- 
tations of working with gold and, in 
1471, he was apprenticed to the fore- 
most painter of Nuremberg, Michael 
Wolgemut. At the same time of Durer's 
apprenticeship, woodcuts for illus- 
trated books were produced in Wolge- 
mut's workshop. 

Durer is credited with being one of 
the first artists to broaden the aesthetic 
possibilities of the woodcut by using 
well-known artists rather than "pro- 
fessional" illustrators to do this kind 
of work. 

The entire series was given by Mrs. 

Forbes Hawks of New York, to Mrs. 
Howard Manning of Raleigh, with the 
request that the prints be presented to 
an art museum selected by Mrs. Man- 
ning. In 1949, Mrs. Manning gave the 
series to the North Carolina State Arts 
Society to be included in the perma- 
nent collection of the museum. 

Mrs. Howard Manning, Mrs. Wil- 
liam Joslin, both of Raleigh, and Mrs. 
Richard Hutchinson of Chapel Hill 
assist the Rev. Charles Greene, di- 
rector of program, on the Committee 
to Select Art Works for the Diocesan 
House. While the Diocesan House will 
accept no gifts, it is hoped that people 
of the Diocese will loan their works 
of art to the Diocesan House for 
periods of time. Furthermore, through- 
out the State there are many artists in 
all fields whose works the committee 
would like to have on exhibition at the 
Diocesan House.

The Bishops Letter: 


February Convention Delegates 
Face Grave Responsibilities 

February 1 and 2 are the dates for the Diocesan Convention. It will be he! 
at Holy Comforter Church in Charlotte. The clergy and elected delegates of eac 
parish have received a letter from Holy Comforter Church indicating the mo 
convenient lodging in relationship to the place of meeting. It is important th 
we make our reservations early and set aside a full two days in which to discu 
the affairs of our Diocese. 

A Diocesan Convention is to the Diocese what a parish meeting is for ti 
parish. This is an opportunity for full participation by clergy and laity in electir 
people to represent us on the boards of institutions and at meetings of the Sync 
and General Convention. It is also at the Diocesan Convention that we adoj 
our budget for 1966 and will be informed of the priorities of the budget for 196' 

Anyone who comes to the Convention bears the responsibility and weight 
representing his congregation and choosing those persons who will carry on tl 
work of the Church in this Diocese in the years ahead. Elections to the Diocesa 
Council are most important as it is the Diocesan Council which acts for the Cor 
vention between Conventions. Trusteeships and membership on the Standin 
Committee and other on committees of the Diocese means election to the d« 
cision-making areas of our Diocesan life. Therefore, to be a delegate is a seriov 
responsibility. The elections at a Convention determine in large measure whethe 
the Church in this Diocese moves forward or drags its feet. 

The Church needs thoughtful people who are willing to give of their time an 
their talent to the program of the Church. We do not at the Convention ele 
people to an office as a privilege or an honor. It is both of these but more ini 
portant, we must elect people who will take the honor and privilege seriously an 
put their shoulder to the wheel and push. We need the best leadership the Dioces 
can provide. Therefore, each delegate is burdened with a heavy responsibility 
he comes to a Diocesan Convention. 

The Standing Committee has invited the delegates and clergy and others to th 
Installation of a Diocesan Bishop which will be held at the Covenant Presb) 
terian Church. We are deeply grateful to the pastor and congregation of Covenar 
Presbyterian Church for being so generous in permitting us to use their Churc 
building and in providing such cordial hospitality for those who will sing in thl 
choir and participate in the service. It is my understanding that this service wi 
be transmitted across the State by television either live or later in the evening 
The Music and Worship Commission of the Diocese is working hard to make thi fl 0 
service a worthy offering to God as we express liturgically what actually too 
place on July 8, 1965, when Bishop Baker retired and the Bishop Coadjutor a< 
sumed the office of Diocesan. 

The Rector of Holy Comforter Church and his lay people are hard at work t 
provide every comfort and convenience for each clergyman and lay delegate. 

At this time, I can only express my gratitude to all who are involved in wh 
is a huge undertaking and to urge those who have been elected to represent thei 
parishes and missions to come prepared to participate fully in what we hope an 
pray will be an alive Convention directed by God's Holy Spirit. 

Faithfully in our Lord.

The earliest beginnings of the Church 
of the Holy Comforter date back to 
the year 1901. During that year the 
Rev. George Meredith Tolson was 
transferred to Charlotte by Bishop 
Cheshire to serve as city missionary. 
At that time St. Peter's, in the down- 
town district, was the only parish in 
the City. Charlotte was growing and 
a number of people were moving out 
to suburban Dilworth, a development 
wholly outside the corporate limits of 
Charlotte. A handful of loyal church 
people, feeling the need of the Church's 
ministrations for their own children and 
the community, formed a loose organi- 

On March 5, 1903 a petition for 

organizing a mission in Dilworth was 
presented to Bishop Cheshire. The 
petition was granted and Mr. Tolson, 
the city missionary, was put in charge. 
His first report contains these statistics: 

15 Families 

50 Baptized persons 

30 Communicants 

A Woman's Guild (St. Elizabeth's) 

A Children's Guild (The Busy Bees) 

In January, 1904, Mr. Tolson left 
to take up work elsewhere, and the 
Rev. Francis Moore Osborne took 

One of the first official acts of Mr. 
Osborne was to present a class of three 
persons for confirmation. (These were: 
Louie B. Mann, Joseph Garibaldi, and 
Mrs. Russie Guthrie.) This service was 
held May 16, 1905. That year the 

* : ebruary 1966 


. . . Rector Since 1959 

roll call showed 90 baptized persons 
and 52 communicants. Mr. Osborne 
also reported that $400 had been 
pledged toward the minister's salary. 
Disbursements, however, showed that 
only $266.66 was paid! Other statistics 
included a variety of interests, among 

General Missions $40.56 

Jewish Missions $ 1.16 

Sewanee $ 2.60 

A Japanese student $ 5.55 

Central fund for 

Woman's Auxiliary $ 1.20 

Meanwhile the mission was acquiring 
property on which to build. Funds 
were growing steadily and in 1908 Mr. 
Osborne reported that the value of the 
church property was $4,500 and that 
the dreams of a new church was be- 
coming a reality. On August 6, 1909 
the cornerstone was laid for the Church 
of the Holy Comforter, Bishop Atkin- 
son Memorial. 

It is easy to see why the name of 
Bishop Thomas G. Atkinson was in- 
cluded in this new church. His life 
was a varied and meaningful one. He 
was interested in all the people, and 
especially concerned about the church- 
ing of slaves. Although he and his 
family suffered many indignities during 
the War between the States, he is best 
known for his success in reuniting the 
Church of the South, which had severed 
connection with the Church of the 
United States during the war, and re- 
turning it to the jurisdiction of a united 
church. He was in reality the balance 
wheel of southern religious leaders. 

It may be interesting to note here 
that the first purchased lot for the new 
church was 50 x 150 feet! Later more 
land was bought for a rectory. No 
parking lot was necessary since trans- 
portation was either by "shank's mare," 
horse and buggy, or by street car. Until 
the church was built, services were held 
in the storeroom of the grocery store 
next to the site of the church building. 

It was Mr. Osborne's wife who was 
instrumental in getting the lovely altar 
of Italian marble, exquisitely carved, 
which still graces the Church of the 
Holy Comforter today. 

In the year of 1916 the Rev. Robert 
Bruce Owens became rector of the 
Parish of the Holy Comforter. Mr. 
Owens' rectorship was a time of steady 
growth in numbers. His sermons were 
scholarly; his interests were wide. He 
served faithfully and well for nearly 
a generation in this church, thereby 
rounding out over half a century of 
priesthood. As time passed and con- 
ditions changed, Mr. Owens realized 
the need for a new and larger church 
and presented his ideas to his parish- 

Upon the retirement of Mr. Owens 
in 1946 the Rev. Iveson B. Noland 
came to Charlotte. He remained about 
four years, during which time the idea 
of a new church building in a new 
location became more concrete. The 
need for larger facilities was acute and 

When the Rev. Joseph Lodge Keller- 
mann in 1950 replaced Mr. Noland 
who went on to become a bishop in 
Louisiana the concept of a new and 
larger church became a reality. The 
marble altar was reinstalled and the 
magnificent stained glass window was 
placed above the altar. 

Visitors and newcomers might be 
interested to know that this window, 
whose theme was conceived by Mr. 
Owens and executed by Tiffany's of 
New York, was later used as the basic 
theme for one of the windows in the 
Cathedral of St. John, the Divine in 
New York City. This is our present 
building structure. 

Mr. Kellermann left in 1958 to be- 
come director of the Alcoholism Infor- 
mation Center in Charlotte. Layreaders 
and the Rev. I. Harding Hughes took 
charge of church services until July, 
1959 when our present rector, the Rev. 
Floyd William Finch, Jr. joined us. 
The first curate in the parish history 
was the Rev. Phillip C. Cato. We had 
grown to 650 communicants at this 
time from a bare 30 in 1903. Mr.

ban's, Davidson, with the Rev. Wil- 
liam Morris, Vicar, has added us to 
their mailing list, as have Christ 
Church, Cleveland, and St. Titus, Dur-

clearly and beautifully stated. 

Honored — Mrs. Louis Voorhees, Sr., 
of St. Mary's in High Point, was hon- 
ored by her parish on Christmas Eve 
as she resigned as head of the pre- 
school department of the church 
school "in which she served loyally 
and devotedly for 39 years." 

Christmas Gifts — It was interesting 
to note from bulletins all over the Dio- 
cese the different places the gift of 
the Christmas offering went — to The 
Presiding Bishops Fund for World Re- 
lief, Cuban refugees, student centers in 
the Diocese, to Panama toward a jeep 
and toward a new church and parish 
house ... to name a few places. 

Astronauts — Did you note that both 
Gemini 7 astronauts were Episcopali- 
ans? A special service was prepared 

for these men as they circled the 
earth by the Rt. Rev. Gerald Fran- 
cis Burrill, bishop of Chicago. The ser- 
vice was taped in the cathedral there, 
flown to Houston and transmitted to 
the spacecraft on the third Sunday in 
Advent. The service was Holy Com- 
munion. Of course, the astronauts 
could not make their communions, but 
an opportunity to make an act of 
spiritual communion was provided. 
Prayers for their protection were of- 
fered by the Bishop, and a choir sang 
stanzas one and three of Hymn 513, 
which includes the lines, "Save all who 
dare the eagle's flight, And keep them 
by thy watchful care from every peril 
in the air." (Taken from St. Luke's 
Newsletter, Durham, the Rev. Wm. 
Hethcock, rector) 

Leave Diocese — When Dr. and Mrs. 
Syd Alexander left Chapel Hill for 
Alabama early in January they left a 
large, vacant space in diocesan af- 
fairs. He has held over the years nu- 
merous diocesan offices, from president 
of the Young People's Service League 
(now EYC) to alternate lay repre- 
sentative to the last Anglican Con- 
gress. Mrs. Alexander (Fran) leaves 
a diocesan office to which she had 
been newly elected, United Thank 
Offering custodian. Dr. Alexander goes 
to Alabama as director of student 
health at the University of Alabama, 
and professor of medicine and pre- 
ventive medicine in the medical school 
of the University. They will be greatly 

At Seminar — The Rev. Dudley 
Colhoun, rector of St. Paul's, Winston- 
Salem, attended an IBM Seminar on 
"Communication and Motivation" in 
Endicott, N. Y., in December. He was 
one of the first clergymen to receive 
an invitation to attend IBM's Customer 
Executive Educational Seminar. 

Memorials — Church of the Good 
Shepherd, Raleigh, in December dedi- 
cated a plaque and new paten to the 
memory of their late rector, the Rev. 
James McDowell Dick, who served 
the church for so many years. The 
Rev. Louis Melcher, Jr., is rector and 
the Rev. James Crowther, assistant.

DURHAM RECTOR, FAMILY— The Rev. John W. S. Davis, rector of St. Stephen's Episcopal Church in Durham, an 
his family were featured in a Christmas season story appearing in "The Durham Sun." The feature included the abov<

acres of land on which to build their 
church. Begun in June 1963, the mis- 
sion has been meeting in Enloe High 
School. The land was given by Mrs. 
Frank Smith in memory of her late 
husband, and is located on New Hope 
Church Road, which lies just off Route 
64 east of Raleigh. The Rev. George 
Hampshire, vicar, says they hope to 
break ground for the new building in 
the Spring. 

Our Cathy — Appearing as star in the 
January Episcopalian was Cathy Col- 
lins of Thompson Orphanage in a pic- 
ture story on "Cathy's Christmas." She 
also graced the cover of the Decem- 
ber issue of the Episcopalian. 

A.C.U. Meets — Early in Decem- 
ber a chapter of the American Church 
Union was formed as the Raleigh- 
Durham-Chapel Hill Chapter of 
A.C.U. Father David Nyeberg, Epis- 
copal chaplain at Seymour-Johnson Air 
Force Base was guest speaker. Of- 

ficers elected were Robert Pace of 
Chapel Hill, president; the Rev. Ed- 
win Smith, St. Augustine's, Raleigh, 
first vice president; Lionel Garrison 
of Durham, second vice president; and 
Mrs. Vallin D. Estes, Jr., of Chapel 
Hill, secretary-treasurer. 

The Trendle— St. Luke's, Salisbury, 
has a new addition to its church, a 
trendle hanging in the arch over the 
choir. The trendle is a ring, or disk, 
or wheel meant to be suspended hori- 
zontally in the chancel during the 
Christmas season, holding lighted can- 
dles. St. Luke's trendle is of wrought 
iron, with ten angels of iron with wings 
of brass, holding ten candles. It will 
be placed in the church on Advent 
Sunday to hang there through the 
octave of Epiphany. During Advent it 
will be used as an Advent wreath. 

Bishop's Chair — A gift of $100 from 
the laymen and churchwomen of 
St. Augustine's College to Diocesan 

House has been used in the chap 
for a permanent chair and prayer des 
for the Bishop of the Diocese. Mr 
Millie D. Veasey is president of th 
Episcopal Churchwomen and Dr. Fris 
sell W. Jones heads the Laymen's As 
sociation at St. Augustine's.

February Prayer Calendar 

Panama, St. Christopher's Church 

St. Christopher's, Rio Abajo, is lo- 
cated in a rapidly growing suburb of 
Panama City. Thirteen years ago, this 
community had 15,000 inhabitants and 
St. Christopher's, 200 members. To- 
day the population is more than 50,- 
000, and the membership of the mis- 
sion is now 1,800 baptized and more 
than 800 communicant members, 
many of whom are very poor com- 
pared with "stateside" standards. Pray 
for the success of the Building Fund 
Campaign for a school-parish hall- 
community center; for the Church 
School and for the work among the 
young people. Pray for the Priest-in- 
charge, the Rev. Clarence W. Hayes, 
and for the people of the parish. 


Panama, Institute Episcopal 
San Cristobal 

This is the newest day school of 
the Missionary District of Panama. Be- 
ginning on May 10, 1965, it is the 
forerunner of what is believed in time 
will be a 400-pupil school serving a 
growing community. Pray for the work 
of this school as it attempts to make 
a contribution toward caring for the 
60,000 grade school students in the 
Republic who are without any school 

Mount Airy, Trinity Church 

Trinity Church requests prayers in 
these areas: guidance on the question 
of moving the church location; more 
zeal within the parish for needs out- 
side the parish; more consistent at- 
tendance at services and more active 
participation in the affairs of the 
church; more love and concern among 
the members of the parish. 

Oxford, St. Cyprian's Church 

Pray for the parish of St. Cyprian's, 
that it may pay off its debt and that 
there may be more evangelistic zeal 
among its members. 

Pittsboro, St. Bartholomew's Church 

Your prayers are requested for a 
more concerned and better informed 

lay leadership and teaching staff; for 
recognition and support of parents in 
Christian education; and for the use 
of this congregation as an agent for 
reconciliation in racial tensions. 

Panama, St. Stephen-Puerto Armuelles 

This is a small mission in the ex- 
treme western end of Panama on the 
coast, almost on the border between 
Costa Rica and Panama. All members 
of the mission are employees or fam- 
ilies of employees of the Chiriqui Land 
Company (United Fruit Company). 
Due to a change in policy, almost all 
the English-speaking congregation is 
being transferred and the Church will 
soon become a Spanish-speaking 
church. There is no resident priest; one 
flies in one week end each month for 
Holy Communion. These people are 
really isolated and need a personal 
contact with a mission or church in the 
United States. As the language change 
is made, some Spanish Prayerbooks 
are needed. Pray for the people of this 
community and for the ministry of the 
Church in this isolated area. 


Pittsboro, St. James' Church 

The congregation of St. James' asks 
for prayers for repairs to the church 
building; for faithfulness in worship; 
and for application of the Gospel in 
racial tensions. 

Raleigh, St. Mark's Church 

Your prayers are requested for an 
added measure of commitment to the 
life of the mission, as two years in a 
high school have sapped energies; and 
also for the first unit for a church 
home, which will cost about $40,000. 

Panama, San Mateo 

St. Matthew's Mission is located in a 
semi-rural community with a growing 
population, approximately 7 miles 
from Panama City. The housing ranges 
from lower middle-class to poor, with 
the populace within the same bracket. 
The Mission operates in the open base- 
ment of a home, which floods when it 

Bank Serves 
As Church At 

Congregations have been known to 
worship in many places: Schools, fire 
stations, funeral homes, remodeled 
residences, converted army barracks, 
trailers, etc.; but religious services in 
a bank are rare indeed. 

When the members of St. John's 
Episcopal Church, Fayetteville, de-l 
molished their old parish house to build] 
a new one on the same site, theja 
needed temporary facilities for Sunday] 
School classes and youth meetings. 

R. E. Rhodes, vice president ol 
First-Citizens Bank & Trust CompanjJ 
and a member of the vestry of StJ 
John's, suggested use of the bank's 
spacious facilities. As a result, tha 
doors of the bank are open on Sun- 
day as well as week-days, but for wor- 
ship only. 

Four classes meet in the bank's 
modern community room; one class in 
the entrance lobby; and two in an at-J 
torney's office library in the building.] 
Each Sunday evening teenagers gatheij 
in the community room for the meetJ 
ing of the young people. 

As far as the local directors of First-] 
Citizens were concerned, this rathea 
unusual request was another opporJ 
tunity to make its facilities available toj 
the public. The bank's new modern 
building was designed with the idea oh 
community service in mind. The lobbja 
has been the scene of many shows 
and exhibits including an annual autd 
show. The community room has been 
used by many groups including various 
civic organizations.

small army field organ and very little 
more. In the past year its membership 
has doubled from 30 to 62 baptized 
persons and 35 communicants. Since 
the basement is shared with anothea 
Church group (the Nazarenes), onlg 
one service is held on Sunday mornl

Jan. Meet Of 
World Laity 

CHICAGO, ILL. — What does the 
Christian religion have to do with 
the everyday life of ordinary men and 
women in today's highly mobile, in- 
creasingly complex society? Protestant 
and Orthodox church members from 
throughout the United States and 
Canada met here January 13-16 in an 
attempt to give at least tentative 
answers to this most searching of all 
questions facing the church in our 
secular age. 

Some 400 laymen from all walks of 
life were here to attend the North 
American Conference on the Ministry 
of the Laity in the World, the second 
of its kind ever held on this continent. 
Like the first — at Buffalo, N. Y., in 
1952 — this precedent-setting event 
was sponsored jointly by the National 
Council of Churches (U.S.A.) and the 
Canadian Council of Churches. 

Throughout the world, and espe- 
cially in postwar Europe, the Chris- 
tian church is laying ever greater stress 
on the ministerial functions of its lay 
members as they live out their lives 
beyond the structures of the church 
itself — when Sunday's worship is 
over and Monday's work has begun. 

"The entire spectrum of jobs and 
social contacts is inseparable from 
Christian faith in the lives of those 
who profess it," said the Rev. Dr. 
Cameron P. Hall, director of the NCC 
Commission on the Church and Eco- 
nomic Life and administrator of the 
forthcoming conference. 

"The meeting's purpose was three- 
fold: to shore up ecumenical gains, to 
study and interpret the implications of 
revolutionary change in today's world 
for the ongoing ministry of lay people, 
and to propose new directions for the 
church in behalf of a more effective 
lay ministry," Dr. Hall said announc- 
ing the conference. 

The conference will issue a message 
— written "by laymen and for lay- 
men" — together with reports from a 
number of "occupational groups" in 
which members of specific professions 
and trades will gather to explore con- 
crete applications of the Christian faith 
to their everyday working lives. 

Whereas all delegates debated and

members on the subject of lay minis-

with this responsibility, but also, as a 
German layman, he can speak with 
authority on the world's most advanced 
system of lay organizations."

Report To Clergy Of Diocese 
Tells Of New Orphanage Spirit 

(From a letter to the parish clergy of 
the Diocese of North Carolina) 

A year ago, I reported to you on a 
new spirit which was beginning to be 
felt at the Thompson Orphanage. Now 
I am pleased to be able to tell you 
that what a year ago was vague hope 
is now becoming exciting actuality. 
Those of us on the Orphanage Execu- 
tive Committee are delighted that ideas 
which have often been expressed 
around this Diocese are now being 
acted upon. The program of the Or- 
phanage, in fact, has changed so 
greatly during the past couple of years 

of the Board of College Education, 
American Lutheran Church; the Rev. 
Hugh C. White of Detroit, Mich., di- 
rector of the Detroit Industrial Mis- 
sion; and the Rev. Ralph W. Loew of 
Buffalo, N. Y., pastor of Holy Trinity 

An expected 85 per cent of official 
conference participants were lay men 
and women, Dr. Hall said. In addition 
to accredited delegates from Protestant 
and Eastern Orthodox ccimmunions 
and related organizations, there was 
a contingent of official Roman Catho- 
lic observers — "a mutual practice 
which is rapidly becoming a traditional 
feature of U.S. religious conferences," 
he said. 

Commenting on the need for the 
January conference and its long- 
range purpose, Dr. Hall said the minis- 
try of the laity has too frequently be- 
come a "mere matter of rhetoric. Much 
of it is quite limited in its application. 

"Delegates to the conference in Chi- 
cago were agonizing over what it means 
— in terms of concrete, everyday speci- 
fics — to be a Christian in today's highly 
complex world," he said. (End)

that you may not have heard all that 
is going on. Therefore, let me share 
news of this progress with you, and 
through you, with your congregation. 

1. The Farm. We have gotten out 
of the milk and eggs business, and 
have dropped all farming operations 
which require 24-hour supervision. We 
have kept only a beef herd, a few 
hogs, and a vegetable garden, to pro- 
vide part of the food for the children. 
By de-emphasizing the farming opera- 
tion, the farm program is able to pro- 
vide opportunities for training the chil- 
dren and for recreation, without it 
dominating the life of the Orphanage 
as it once did. 

2. Moving the Orphanage. It is 
hoped that the new campus on the 
farm property will be completed and 
occupied within two years. Sketches of 
buildings and recommendations for 
their location are to be presented to 
the Board of Managers in January. 
After it is decided where on the farm 
the campus will be located, a decision 
will be made on the use of the rest 
of the land there. Please remember 
that, because of rental income from 
the Charlottetown Mall, it will be pos- 
sible for this new campus to be built 
without a capital funds campaign. 

3. Relationship to this Diocese. Steps 
are being taken to have the Board of 
Managers (as the body elected by and 
responsible to the three North Caro- 
lina dioceses) meet more frequently 
and become more involved in the Or- 
phanage program, following the recom-

stitutional Study. 

4. Goldsboro. The group-care cot- 
tage in Goldsboro should be completed 
in January. This facility will not only 
serve the diocese of East Carolina, 
but will increase the service we can 
offer to the eastern area of this diocese. 

5. Size. There are now 62 children 
on the Orphanage campus, as many 
as we can handle. Eleven children are 
in foster homes; the budget allows for 
six more children in foster homes next 
year. By having a campus, a group- 
care cottage, and foster homes, we will 
be able to provide for the particular 
needs of individual children.

Critical Need Seen Arising 
For Used Clothing Overseas 

Contributions of used clothing to 
Church World Service for distribution 
overseas are decreasing — and CWS 
officials are frankly worried about the 
trend. They're worried because the 
need for good used clothing in Asia, 
Africa, and Latin America is increas- 
ing and, for the first time in many 
months, leaders of the cooperative 
Protestant relief agency are wonder- 
ing how requests can be filled. 

"Clothing donors are disaster- 
minded. The one good thing about 
today's headlines may be that readers 
will be reminded of the suffering and 
misery in the rest of the world — and 
moved to do something about it." 

Thus comments Melvin B. Myers, 
director of the Material Resources Pro- 
gram of Church World Service. 

"Perhaps people's attention to the 
conflict between India and Pakistan 
and in Vietnam will impell them to 
help meet the crucial needs of refu- 
gees caught in these situations," he 
said. "I'm hoping this concern will be 
reflected in our clothing and fabric 

Wunder, director of the Division of 
Planning with Children and Families, 
Bill D. Brittain is now on the Orphan- 
age staff, as director of the Division of 
Group Child Care — three highly ca- 
pable people, well-equipped to serve 
children. In addition, other staff mem- 
bers (house mothers, maintenance per- 
sonnel, etc.) are being chosen for their 
ability to minister to children — and 
at last they are being paid a more 
nearly adequate salary. 

Meeting the complex needs of to- 
day's child costs money. Next year's 
operating budget will be over $177,- 
000. Last year the Thanksgiving Of- 
fering from this diocese was $21,413; 
this year we are hoping for $23,000 
from this diocese. The changes have 
now come about which many of us 
have been requesting for years. The 
time has come for us to show our sup- 
port for this new expanded program 
by more enthusiastic financial partici-

pick-ups across the nation for some 
months to come." 

Latest figures, as of September 30, 
1965, indicate that 2,954,170 pounds 
of clothing was contributed to Church 
World Service during the first eight 
months of this year. During the same 
period last year nearly VA million 
pounds of clothing was contributed. 
And the 1964 total is less than that 
of 1963. 

The North Carolina Council of 
Churches co-operates with Church 
World Service through the state Com- 
mittee on Ministry for Overseas Relief 
which is headed by the Rev. Rob- 
ert R. Jones, pastor of the Fraternity 
Church of the Brethren at Winston- 
Salem. In 1964 North Carolina col- 
lected 73,761 pounds of usable cloth- 
ing, shoes, and bedding to be sent to 
the needy abroad. This was the best 
record of any state in the Southeast, 
but collections are running behind 
that this year. Contributions may be 
sent or taken to 18 depots scattered 
throughout the State, a list of which 
is given below. A truck from the 
Church World Service Center at New 
Windsor, Maryland, will make pick- 
ups from the depots in April. 

Acute needs for clothing and fabric 
parcels exist in Vietnam, Hong Kong, 
India, Pakistan, the Republic of the 
Congo, and in dozens of other areas 
where large concentrations of refugees 
exist. Church World Service collects 
used clothing in the United States at 
predetermined collecting depots on a 
regular schedule, using its own trucks. 
The clothing is sorted, and baled at 
nine Clothing Centers, strategically lo- 
cated throughout the country. The 
Clothing Center for this area is lo- 
cated at New Windsor. The clothing is 
shipped to overseas distribution points 
which are maintained by various Chris- 
tian councils or mission agencies in 
the receiving countries. The process is 
practical, truly ecumenical, proved by 
years of experience, and economical. 

One of the most urgent needs is an 
appeal for 20,000 fabric parcels to be 
used by Vietnamese refugee women in 
making much-needed clothing for their 
families. Used clothing is not being 
shipped to Vietnam at the present

Presenfed Citation 

During a banquet at the recent 
opening of the 15th annual Washing-

awarded to television's oldest reli- 
gious series, "Lamp Unto My Feet." 

The program, which celebrated its 
17th anniversary in November, is a 
presentation of CBS News, from 10 to 
10:30 a.m. (EST), and is produced by

weight clothing for tropical areas, in- 
fants' wear, children's clothing, and 
women's garments. 

Shoes can also be accepted for over- 
seas shipment. Men's shoes, especially 
work shoes, are urgently required — 
as are children's shoes. Women's shoes 
should be size 5 or larger and should 
not have open toes, high heels, or 
strap backs. 

All clothing and shoes should be in 
good condition and ready to wear. 
Cleaning is desirable; pressing is un- 
necessary. Many local groups recon- 
dition clothing and shoes before ship- 
ment to the CWS Clothing Center. 

Local groups are asked to contribute 
ten cents per pound (to be sent sep- 
arately to the CWS Clothing Center, 
not included with the clothing ship- 
ment!) to help defray costs of sorting, 
baling, and preparation for shipment. 
Ocean freight is paid in most instances 
by the United States government. Were 
it not for the payment of these costs 
out of foreign-aid funds, it would be 
necessary to ask the churches and other 
local collecting groups for much more 
than ten cents per pound. 

The churches are doing less rather 
than more to meet increasing needs 
for clothing among refugees overseas. 
An immediate check of your closets 
and a community-wide collection of 
clothing or fabric parcels will help 
Church World Service to fulfill its mini- 
mum commitments for 1965.

day, Monday and Tuesday evenings

will conclude all services. Spiritual 
healing, according to Dr. Price, is not 
just a matter of seeking the cure of 
physical illness. It goes deeper, he says, 
seeking to help people bring God into 
all their life situations so that anything 
that stands in the way of wholesome 
and more abundant healthy living will 
be alleviated or cured . . . whether the 
situation be a troubled body, mind, soul 
or a social maladjustment. The healing 
mission is expected to attract an at- 
tendance from throughout the Diocese.

Churchwomen Plan March 8 Retreat 

A retreat for the Episcopal Church- 
women will be held at the Terraces in 
Southern Pines March 8-10 (begin- 
ning with supper and ending with 
lunch) under the direction of The Rt. 
Rev. David S. Rose, bishop coadjutor 
of the Diocese of Southern Virginia. 

A native of Tennessee, Bishop Rose 
received both his B.A. Degree and his 
B.D. Degree from the University of 
the South. He was consecrated in 1958 
and served the Diocese of Southern 
Virginia as suffragan until he was 
elected coadjutor in 1964. 

He lives in Petersburg, Virginia. His 
charges since his ordination in 1938 
have included missions and parishes 
in Tennessee, Florida, and Texas. He 
has also served as a chaplain in the 
Army and as assistant to the Bishop of 
Florida. He was priest-student at St. 
Augustine's, Canterbury, I^gland, the 
Central college of the Anglican Com- 
munion. He holds D.D. degrees from 
the University of the South and Vir- 
ginia Theological Seminary. 

The retreat is open to all women 
of the Diocese, but only 28 can be ac- 
commodated. Requests for registration 
blanks should be sent to Mrs. W. D.

'Off-Season Operation Too: 

Vade AAecum Now Looks Forward 
To Spring Time Revitalizing 

Resident Manager and Director of 
Children's Camps 

Although Vade Mecum has a highly 
publicized schedule of camp and con- 
ference programs during June, July, 
and August, it surprises many people 
to learn that the camp maintains an 
"off-season" operation during four ad- 
ditional months of the year. During 
April, May, September, and October, 
the camp entertains annually about 
400 people and receipts about $3,- 
000 in weekend programs. Cold weath- 
er forces Vade Mecum to close its doors 
during the months of November, De- 
cember, January, February, and 

Dogwood blossoms and wild flowers 
adorn the mountainous countryside of 
Vade Mecum in April. Every conceiv- 
able growing plant, from Lady Slip- 
pers to Trout Lillies, border the trails 
which weave through the 500 acres of 
Camp Vade Mecum. 

A variety of groups take advantage 
of this springtime beauty. The North 
Carolina State Bible Club, with mem- 
bership of approximately 150 peo- 
ple, holds one of its annual meetings 
at Vade Mecum in April. Members of 
the NCSBC are always generous with 
their time and assist the staff in un- 
veiling the dust covered tables and 
chairs and sweeping away the over- 
hanging cobwebs which accumulate 
over the long winter months. Episcopal 

Young Churchmen from parishes and 
missions throughout the Diocese also 
utilize spring weekends for retreats and 
study conferences. Young people from 
the downtown churches of Reidsville, 
North Carolina, enjoy an ecumenical 
retreat each spring under the leader- 
ship of the Reverend Gary Verell, rec- 
tor of St. Thomas' Church in Reids- 

In the fall, during the months of 
September and October, there are no 
Trout Lillies, but a panorama of yel- 
lows, reds, browns, and greens is to be j 
seen in every direction. Vade Mecum 
in the fall-time is a picture of the j 
beauty and the majesty and the glory j 
of God and His created order. The 
mountains beckon visitors to come and 
see. The NCSBC returns to Vade ' 
Mecum for its annual fall meeting. J 
Another group, the Fraternity Church 
of the Brethren, makes an annual fall j 
weekend retreat to which whole fam- j 
ilies are invited. Groups of Episcopal 
Young Churchmen again return for 
purposes of retreat, planning fall pro- | 
grams, and the like. One of the most 
successful examples of this in the fall 
of 1965 was the planning conference j 
conducted by the Young Churchmen 
and their advisers from St. Luke's y 
Church in Salisbury. | 

Vade Mecum can no longer be con- i f 
sidered merely a summer institution. [ 
Retreats, conferences, and camping f 
utilize the facilities seven months of 
each year. The remaining five months d 
are spent in preparation for the coming 
year's programs. The demand grows t 
annually, and Vade Mecum receives t 
advance booking sometimes as much \ 
as a year before the conference to be l 
scheduled. t 

Increasing pressure of population a 
and increasing land use should make ; f 
us gratefully aware of how fortunate i c 
we are to have reserved in its natural 
state 500 acres of woodland and t 
mountainside in which we, the people ' 
of this Diocese, can find refreshment 1 
and renewed dedication as stewards of 1 
the created order. 

"Vade Mecum" means "Come with I 
me." Please consider this a standing ( 
invitation to you. Address all inquiries 
regarding off-season use of Camp Vade )

Church of the Month 

Galloway Memorial Chapel, Elkin 

Work on the construction of Gallo- 
way Memorial Chapel was begun in 
1897. It was built by Mrs. Alexander 
B. Galloway in memory of her hus- 
band. Heart pine timber was hauled 
from Wilkes County by ox team and 
the building is structurally as sound to- 
day as the day it was built. 

Since that time there has been no 
major change made in either the in- 
terior or exterior decoration. The 
hand pegged doors are still in place 
as are the wood screen and the vicar's 
walk. Throughout the building are gifts 
and memorials, evidence of the love 
for the church held by the communi- 

In the beginning services were con- 
ducted at rather irregular intervals by 
the Rev. R. W. Barber, rector of St. 
Paul's Church, Wilkesboro. After his 
death, services were held intermit- 
tently, being conducted by a variety of 
visiting clergymen. During all this time 
Sunday school was taught by Mrs. 
Galloway each Sunday. 

After World War II, the Rev. 
Mark A. Boesser, Rector of Trinity 
Church, Mt. Airy, served the church 
regularly on each Sunday evening. He 

was succeeded by the Rev. Frederick 
W. Hoyt. The first full-time Vicar was 
the Rev. James O. Walker, Jr. who 
was succeeded by the Rev. Samuel K. 
Frazier, Jr. The present priest-in- 
charge is the Rev. J. Donald Parting- 

The present membership consists of 

68 baptized persons and 45 communi- 
cants. In addition there are any num- 
ber of non-members who are most 
faithful in their support. 

In consecrating the building in 1898, 
the late Bishop Joseph Blount Ches- 
hire referred to Col. Galloway as "a 
man of God." 

St. Marys College Sponsors 
Series Of Special Programs 

The choir of Holy Trinity Greek 
Orthodox Church of Raleigh provided 
a vesper program at St. Mary's Junior 
College recently. The Rev. Elias 
Stephanopoulos, pastor of Holy 
Trinity, gave an introduction to By- 
zantine Sacred Music, and was the 
cantor for several of the liturgical 

The program was jointly sponsored 
by the Wake County Chapter of the 
American Guild of Organists and St. 
Mary's Chapel. It included hymns and 
chants from the Eucharist, Easter 
music and an evening litany. 

In December the Rev. James Crow- 
ther, of the Church of the Good Shep- 
herd, Raleigh, gave an illustrated lec- 
ture to a large group of St. Mary's 
students, covering his experiences in 
evangelistic and hospital work in Li- 
beria. He was formerly on the staff of 
the Liberian Mission of the Order of 
the Holy Cross. 

These programs and the visit of the 
Rt. Rev. Cyril Tucker, Bishop of the 
Argentine, are in keeping with efforts 
of St. Mary's to witness to the outreach 
of the Gospel.

Charlotte Couple Takes Greetings: 

'Packets For Panama' Project 
Launched By Tar Heel Visitors 

A family of North Carolina Episco- 
palians left Charlotte at 10 a.m. on 
December 21, laden with greetings for 
fellow Christians overseas. Mr. and 
Mrs. Emmett Bryan and their family, 
of Route 1, Matthews, went as "Over- 
seas Messengers" from the Diocese of 
North Carolina to the Missionary Dis- 
trict of Panama and the Canal Zone. 

The greetings the Bryans took rep- 
resent a diocesan-wide crash program 
called "Packets for Panama," launched 
recently by the Rev. Charles Penick, 
rector of the Church of the Good 
Shepherd in Rocky Mount. Each par- 
ish and mission church was asked to 
prepare a packet introducing itself to 
a parish in Panama. The packets in- 
clude snapshots, newspaper clippings, 
church bulletins, post cards, and in 
most cases a letter from the rector of 
the North Carolina parish. One parish 
reproduced in Spanish a letter which 

was signed by over 200 members, in- 
cluding some three-year-olds' "signa- 
tures" scrawled in crayons. 

Bryan, a Charlotte architect, is chair- 
man of the Diocesan Committee on 
Laymen Overseas. His committee is 
planning to sponsor later in 1966 a 
two-week "Bishop's Mission Tour," at 
which time the Bishop of North Caro- 
lina will lead a group of laymen to 
view the mission of the Church in 
Panama. The Bryan family visit will 
cement ties between North Carolina 
and Panama, and will begin a new 
phase of "companion diocese" rela- 
tionship, involving more person to per- 
son and parish to parish contact. 

St. John's Episcopal Church on Car- 
mel Road in Charlotte, the home 
parish of the Bryans, held a "com- 
missioning" service, after the example 
of the early Church in the Book of 
Acts, prior to their leaving for Panama. 

Full Communion 
Agreement Signed 

This fall in Vienna, before the open- 
ing session of the Old Catholic Con- 
gress, the International Conference of 
Old Catholic Bishops and the ranking 
bishops of three other churches — the 
Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church, 
the Lusitanian Church of Portugal and 
the Philippine Independent Church — 
signed a formal agreement of full com- 

In the agreement the four churches, 
all members of the Wider Episcopal 
Fellowship, permit their members to 
take part in the sacraments of the 
others and recognize that inter-com- 
munion implies that each believes the 
other to hold all the essentials of the 
Christian faith. Each of these churches 
is already in inter-communion with all 
or part of the Anglican Communion. 

A message to the Old Catholic 
Congress from the Archbishop of Can- 
terbury said that the full communion of 
Old Catholics and Anglicans is "a con- 
stant source of joy and thankfulness."

Call To The Laity 

Editor's Note: Following is the sermon delivered by Bishop Thomas A. 
Fraser on the occasion of his installation during the 150th diocesan con- 
vention February 1 and 2 at Charlotte. The sermon was voiced before more 
than 1,000 persons who were present for the installation conducted by the 
Rt. Rev. John E. Hines, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church in the 
United States. 

St. Matthew, Chapter 28, Verses 19 and 20: 

"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the 
Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, 
lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world." 

These are old-fashioned words of the sawdust trail, but words we must face 
eyeball to eyeball if the Church, the Christian world, is to bring light into the 
darkness that is about to overcome us all. 

There is more criticism being written about Christianity and the Church and 
the Church's program than is really fit to print, but truly we deserve it. 

First of all, we do not speak a language a majority of the people understand. 
We hide in secret and foreign symbolism, and refuse to come clean and be 
honest with ourselves and the world. We just do not make ourselves understood. 
It may be that we do not understand ourselves. It is for this reason that on 
the whole no-one invites the Christian Church into the decision-making areas 
of life — instead, they leave us deserted on a spiritual and intellectual island. 
The opposite should be the case. It is the layman's responsibility to inform the 
clergyman of the affairs of his city, state, and nation, and help him to act re- 
sponsibly as a clergyman of the Christian Faith. The clergyman's responsibility 
is to inform the layman of the teachings of the Christian Faith, and to help him to 
act responsibly in the areas of social, economic, and political life as a Christian 
and as a churchman, as well as an American citizen. It is ridiculous for laymen 
to be complaining about what the Church does, when they are the Church and 
they have abandoned their position of leadership and responsibility. 

Secondly, while the professional churchman is going through an academic, 
and, unfortunately all too frequently, a psychological process of de-mythologizing 
the Gospel, the world which confronts the hard realities of a Vietnam, riots, 
strikes, accident, and fraud, is eagerly waiting to hear the mythology and the 
"good news" of the Gospel. All they really hear is "Playboy" ethics, and "God 
is dead" — while we sing "Onward, Christian Soldiers," with the spirit of one 
who couldn't care less. 

Thirdly, ill-advised prophets bring us the word that the institutional church 
is dead. Quite frankly, they haven't gotten to the core of the matter. Christianity 
is no longer a first choice as the way of life for a majority of the world's popu 
lation. No wonder the institutional church seems dead. And beyond this, where 
the institutional church still has a warm and breathing body, the Gospel that is 
proclaimed has lost its real starch. It is thin — emaciated — nervous — and lacks 
the fortitude of one who "was obedient even unto death." Reinhold Niebuhr 
used to speak of a "crossless" Christianity. It is true that the Gospel we are 
preaching today has no cross in it, but even worse — it declares no hope of a 
resurrection. How then can the Church, the Sacraments, the ministry — lay or 
ordained, have any real meaning? Is it any wonder that prayer has deteriorated 
into an aspirin for anxiety headaches? 

Fourth — the laity, men, women and youth, have abandoned their Christian 
leadership because they hear no Gospel, and therefore do not know where to 
go. And when they volunteer to serve, to use to the Glory of God and the benefit 
of His world the talents which God has given them, we turn them loose with 
such magnificent and challenging tasks as ushering on Sunday morning, firing 
a cranky organist, or seeing to it that burned-out lightbulbs are replaced. These 
are no challenges for the laity who are involved in the complexity and the brilli 
ance of a world that is swept up in the greatest technological advances in the 
history of mankind. These are man-size people, and they demand man-size 
challenges. We must invite them into the inner chambers of the planning and

Resolution Adopted on National Council of Churches: 

Time Of Change' Marks Climate Of 
Diocesan Convention At Charlotte 

Churchman Editorial Board 

"Do not fear this changing world, but meet this change with obedience to Christ." With these words Bishop Thomas A. 
Fraser set the theme for the 150th Convention of the Diocese held at Church of the Holy Comforter, Charlotte, on Feb- 
ruary 1 and 2. "It seems to me," he said in his address to the Convention, "that as we survey the whole scene about us 
as Christians and as Anglican Churchmen, these words must be our motto and our theme." 

This element of change was evi- 
dent in many ways at the Convention. 
Perhaps it was most dramatically sym- 
bolized when, in the installation service 
on Tuesday night the retired bishop 
took the pastoral staff from the altar 
and handing it to the new bishop said, 
"I do invest you with the real, actual 
and corporal possession of the Bish- 
opric of North Carolina." 

Change was again dramatized in the 
action of the Convention in voting to 

take the first step toward allowing 
women to represent their congrega- 
tions as delegates to the Convention 
of the Diocese. Last year the dele- 
gates made it possible for women to be 
elected to the vestries of parishes and 
missions. This new change in the Con- 
stitution must, however, be voted again 
at the next Diocesan Convention be- 
fore it goes into effect. 

And change in the relation of the 
Church to the outside world was much 

the thinking of the Christian Church, for these people are the Christian Church. 

The space age man will no longer be caught on the gimmicks of tithing to 
raise a puny budget or with the poetical words of a Catechism to get him into 
Church on Sunday morning. A church that challenges a man with only ten per- 
cent of what he can earn, is lucky if it gets one percent. A church which only 
calls for a man's body on Sunday morning to fill a pew, is lucky if it ever sees 
him. And may I remind you that this is not what our Lord asked of us. He 
didn't ask for ten percent. He didn't ask for one day a week. He said, "Pick up 
your cross and follow me," and that means all of you, body, mind, and spirit, 
twenty-four hours a day. Part-time, piecemeal, small percentage Christianity is 
insufficient for the day in which we live. Furthermore, it never was sufficient, 
or we wouldn't be where we are today. The giants of the Christian Faith, the 
stalwart men — were full-time Christians, full-time disciples of Christ, with a 
full-time commitment. 

The Church needs an ordained and lay ministry of men, women, and youth 
who will help us to analyze, to evaluate, and to plan a strategy to go into all the 
world and teach and baptize and challenge people in the name of the Father, and 
the Son, and the Holy Ghost, so that the darkness of the world will not snuff out 
the light of Christ. 

In brief, this strategy must be one of being and going where people are; speak- 
ing to them in a language they understand — a language of word and music and 
art-form and personal living — with the courage and a conviction and a commit- 
ment that comes from hearts which burn with a passion for the love of God which 
ai will attract people of every nation and race and class to join us; so that we may 
hold Christ high in the battle where a world is being scarred by war and poverty 
fi and over population and greed and hatred and prejudice. Yes, we must stand 
arm in arm with the lay and ordained of all Christian Churches, with our toes on 
n| the line of all of life, ready to run the race before us. 

We live in a world rich with resources of Truth that come from disciplines 
III other than our own, and these the laity must bring to the service of God in His 
hi Church. We cannot afford, and must not be smug or stuffy, but simple and 
ji humble and unafraid as one who knows himself and his destiny, because he 
U knows his Redeemer liveth. (End) 

March 1966 

in evidence as the Committee on Reso- 
lutions led the effort "to come to some 
common feeling to be voiced by the 
whole Convention" on the matter of 
the National Council of Churches. 

The relation of the Diocese to the 
activities of the National Council of 
Churches was first brought before the 
assembly through a resolution intro- 
duced by R. C. Howison, Jr., of Christ 
Church, Raleigh. Delegate Howison's 
resolution was concerned, in brief, 
with the Council's activity on the sub- 
ject of Section 14 (B> of the Taft- 
Hartley Act. It first asked the Con- 
vention to disapprove this action; 
second, that the Council stop any at- 
tempts to influence any instrumentality 
of government; and third, that the 
Convention ask our National Church 
to require conformity of the Council 
to the second item as a condition of 
continued membership of the Church 
in the Council. 

A second resolution on this subject 
was introduced by the Rev. J. W. S. 
Davis of St. Stephen's Church, Dur- 
ham. Mr. Davis' resolution acknowl- 
edged the value of the Council in its 
missionary efforts, its promotion of 
Christianity, and its right to be con- 
cerned with "all phases of secular life." 
But, it asked that the Council adopt 
a policy of restraint, first, in making 
public statements on and giving spe- 
cific solutions to controversial secular 
issues, and second, in any attempt to 
influence specific legislation where our 
Church has taken no stand. 

At the close of the first day's ses- 
sion of the Convention the Resolu- 
tion's Committee, headed by the Rev. 
T. W. Blair, Christ Church, Charlotte, 
held open hearings on these two reso- 
lutions. Other members of his com- 
mittee were Messrs. Thomas Southgate 

and Robert Merritt, both of Mt. Airy, 
and W. H. Long, Jr., of Roanoke 
Rapids. On Wednesday noon this com- 
mittee brought to the Convention a 
compromise resolution in which it had 
"tried to draft a resolution gathering 
the sense of both in succinct form." 
Mr. Blair noted that the first resolu- 
tion had been too narrow in scope and 
that the Convention, he believed, 
would not be able to reach agreement 
on it. The second, he noted, had con- 
siderable support, but was too broad 
in scope and too involved. He offered 
to the introducers of both resolutions 
the opportunity to re-introduce them, 
but both declined. 

The compromise resolution brought 
in by Mr. Blair was discussed on the 
Convention floor at length; several 
amendments were offered and de- 
feated; and the resolution was passed 
in its original form. Briefly, the reso- 
lution asks that public statements by 
the Council should have a primary pur- 
pose of stating issues of Christian con- 
cern; should not question Christian 
commitment of those in disagreement; 
should not try to give specific solu- 
tions to specialized problems; should 
avoid the impression of offering the 
only specific Christian solution. It also 
asks the Council to restrain itself from 
efforts to influence specific legislation, 
except where the Church has taken 
an official stand. Full text of the 
resolution will be found elsewhere on 
this page. 

High moment of the trip to Char- 
lotte (for delegates to the 150th Dio- 
cesan Convention) was the installa- 
tion of Bishop Fraser as Diocesan in 
a beautiful and impressive ceremony 
before more than 1,000 people at 
Covenant Presbyterian Church on 
Tuesday night. Covenant Church gen- 
erously lent their church since its 
sanctuary is larger than those of any 
of the local Episcopal churches. 

A choir from parishes throughout 
the Diocese led the processions which 
opened the hour-long service. Next 
came the religious dignitaries of other 
faiths. Included were representatives 
from these churches: A.M.E. Zion; 
Greek Orthodox; Jewish Congregation 
of N. C; Lutheran, in America; Meth- 
odist, Moravian; Presbyterian, U. S.; 
Roman Catholic; Southern Baptist; 
and United Church of Christ. 

Next in the procession were the visit- 
ing bishops. They were the Rt. Rev. 
Thomas H. Cashmore, Lord Bishop of 
Dunwich, England; Bishop Harry Lee 

Here's Text Of NCC Resolution 

Here's the text of the resolution adopted by delegates to the 1966 con- 
vention with regard to the National Council of Churches. The resolution 
was introduced by the Rev. Thorn W. Blair, chairman of the Resolutions 
Committee, as follows: 

"Whereas this convention notes with alarm the efforts of the National 
Council of Churches to influence specific legislation, in particular the 
statements of their representatives concerning the repeal of Section (14b) 
for the Taft-Hartley Act. 

"And whereas this convention also notes many persons are led to believe 
that the National Council of Churches speaks for all the Churches of this 

"Therefore be it resolved: 

"1. That the position of the convention on any public statements or re- 
leases of the National Council of Churches and its Departments and agencies 
be stated as follows: 

"a. Such public statements or releases should have as a primary pur- 
pose the setting forth of issues about which Christian people ought to be 

"b. They should be so phrased as not to bring into question the 
Christian commitment of those who do not agree. 

"c. Statements should not try to give specific solutions to problems 
that must be decided by statesmen or others in specialized fields of 

"d. While statements may be directed properly to any area of life, 
they should avoid the impression that they offer the only specific Chris- 
tian solution to the problem. 

"2. That we urge our representatives to the National Council of churches 
to seek to restrain the National Council of Churches and its departments 
and agencies from efforts to influence specific legislation, except where 
issues are involved on which this Church has taken a stand through the 
General Convention, the House of Bishops, or the Executive Council. 

"3. That the delegates from this Diocese to the next General Convention 
be instructed to take such action as in their judgment will further the im- 
plementation of the above solutions. 

"4. That the delegates of this Church to the National Council of Churches 
be immediately advised of our action." 

Doll of Maryland; Bishop Randolph 
Claiborne of Atlanta; Bishop John 
Vander Horst of Tennessee; Bishop 
John Pinckney of Upper South Caro- 
lina; Bishop Girault Jones of Louisi- 
ana; Bishop Thomas Wright of Eastern 
North Carolina; and Bishop Robert 
Gribben, retired, Western North Caro- 

The Rt. Rev. John E. Hines, the 
presiding bishop, and our retired 
bishop, the Rt. Rev. Richard H. 
Baker, came next. Following them 
were the diocesan clergy and mem- 
bers of the Standing Committee. The 
chancellor of the Diocese, Henry C. 
Bourne, and the president of the 
Standing Committee, the Rev. Carl 
Herman, opened the service with the 
reading of the Ratification of Acces- 
sion issued by the presiding bishop. 

The people, then turning to face the 
west door of the church through which 
the processions had come, heard Bishop 
Fraser knock three times upon the 
door. He entered, accompanied by his 
two chaplains, and made his petition 
to be inducted, invested, and installed 
as bishop of this Diocese. Have been 
given this permission by the Standing 
Committee, there then came the in- 
duction by the Presiding Bishop "to all 
the Rights, Honours, Privileges, Digni- 
ties and Prerogatives of the Bishopric 
of North Carolina." 

For the investiture the retired bishop 
of North Carolina, taking the silver 
pastoral staff from the altar, received 
and acknowledged Bishop Fraser as 
chief pastor and ordinary of this 
Diocese. Taking his oath on a copy 
of the Holy Scriptures, Bishop Fraser

INSTALLATION PHOTOS — The above photograph as well as those on this month's cover were made during the recent 
installation of Bishop Thomas A. Fraser by Photographer Tom Walters, a member of St. Andrew's parish at Charlotte. 
The above picture is a processional view following the actual installation. The top picture on the cover shows Bishop 
Fraser (seated) surrounded by installation participants, including Presiding Bishop John E. Hines (right). The front cover 
photo at lower left shows Retired Bishop Richard H. Baker presenting the Pastoral Staff to Bishop Fraser. The picture 
at lower right shows the moment of installation by Bishop Hines while the Rev. O'Kelly Whitaker, master of ceremonies,

Easter issue. 

swore to "observe and to the utmost 
defend the Rights, Privileges, Liber- 
ties and Customs of this Church and 
Diocese, not lording it over God's 
heritage, but striving in all things to 
be a Shepherd to the Flock of Christ." 

The installation took place when 
with a fanfare of trumpets, the singing 
of the Doxology and a prayer, the 
deans of the convocations led the 
Bishop to his chair. Then came the 
new Diocesan's sermon (carried in full 
on page 2). Following the singing of 
the National Anthem the retiring pro- 
cessions led the congregation from the 

The Rev. O'Kelley Whitaker, St. 
Luke's Salisbury, was master of cere- 
monies. The Bishop's chaplains were 
the Rev. James Beckwith, St. Mi- 
chael's, Raleigh; and the Rev. Joseph 
O'Brian, executive secretary for Col- 
lege Work, Fourth Province. The di- 
rector of music was Richard Van Sciver, 
St. Peter's Charlotte. The organist was 
Dr. Richard Peek of the Church of 
the Covenant and the brass quartet 
and tympanist were from Davidson 

Among all the ceremonies and ex- 
citements the Convention managed to 
dispatch a large amount of every-day 
business. Leading off the first session 
was Bishop Fraser's address. He re- 
ported that he would not now request 
a suffragan bishop, but would depend 
increasingly on the convocation deans, 
particularly in arranging area visita- 
tions. He told of his recent trip to 
Panama, the dedication of the Student 
Center there, and spoke of our com- 

panion diocese relationship as being 
"a great missionary venture." He spoke 
of sabbatical leaves for the clergy, new 
mission strategy in rural and declin- 
ing areas, asked for a renewed em- 
phasis on youth programs; talked of 
the clergy and their lack of "privileged 
communications" with parishoners; a 
new emphasis for Penick Home, and 
the MRI program. (Full text of his 
address is on page 5) 

In the way of financial matters the 
Convention adopted a budget for 1966 
which increased the Maintenance 
Fund to $127,343.00 over $123,- 
106.12 for 1965; the Program Fund 
to $535,650.00 over $504,120.93 for 
1965. Priority recommendations for 
program objectives adopted for the 
1967 budget were divided into two 
areas. Under better support of exist- 
ing programs came $5,000 to the Na- 
tional Church for overseas work; $800 
increase for secretary and discretion- 
ary fund for the Durham Hospital 
chaplaincy; $2,500 increase for secre- 
tarial assistance for the five college 
chaplains; $6,200 increase in support 
of St. Augustine's. Under new or ex- 
panded programs it recommended 
$10,000 for support of Penick Home; 
$6,000 for Department of Missions 
and Church Extension; $3,000 for a 
college chaplaincy at UNC, Charlotte. 

Elections and appointments to vari- 
ous posts, boards, committees and dele- 
gations occupied much Convention at- 
tention. Names of those elected and 
appointed are to be found on page 
15. Special recognition came to one 
committee member with a rising vote 

of thanks to the Rev. Carl Herman 
who retired as president of the Stand- 
ing Committee. He has served as presi- 
dent for four years and as secretary 
"since Joe Cheshire's father stopped." 
He remains secretary for the Diocese. 

Other recognitions came with the 
Bishop's Award to 13 men for their 
"devoted and untiring 'service" to the 
Diocese. Bishop Fraser presented a 
plaque to each man as a token of 
"appreciation, esteem, and love." He 
pointed out that the strength of the 
Diocese rests in its laity, not in its 
bishops and clergy. Those so recog- 
nized were Messrs. Arthur Tyler and 
Kemp Battle, both of Rocky Mount; 
Henry Bourne of Tarboro; Shields 
Alexander of Scotland Neck; Starke 
Dillard, Sr., of Greensboro; Cleveland 
Thayer of Asheboro; W. A. Goodson, 
Sr., of Winston-Salem; and Ralph 
Bouligny, H. T. Cosby, Norman 
Cocke, Everett Pierson, Francis Clark- 
son, Sr., and T. C. Haywood, Sr., all 
of Charlotte. 

Final business of the Convention 
was the resolution of courtesy, thank- 
ing the host, the Church of the Holy 
Comforter, for its splendid hospitality. 
The Rev. Floyd Finch, Jr., is rector, 
and the Rev. Peter Thomas, curate. 
Max Angerholzer was general chair- 
man, and the following persons from 
the congregations headed convention 
committees; Messrs. Earl Seagrave, 
J. W. Morris, Fred W. Paschall, Hey- 
ward Bellamy, James Holt, James 
Newton, Mr. and Mrs. Alexander By- 
num and Mrs. Henry Chandlee. (End)

Hold No Fear For A Changing World 
Bishop Urges Convention Delegates 

Editor's Note: Here is Bishop 
Fraser's "State of the Diocese" 
address delivered at the opening 
session of the Charlotte conven- 
tion during early February. 

My Brothers in Christ: 

The Diocesan House is finished, 
dedicated, and has been in use since 
December 3, 1965. There are still 
odds and ends to be completed, but 
it provides the most happy surround- 
ings in which to work, and we already 
notice an increased efficiency in the 
work of the Diocesan Staff. You will 
be happy to know that for the building 
and furnishings, we will only borrow 
$220,000.00 of the $250,000.00 au- 
thorized by our last Diocesan Conven- 

On January 1 we began a daily 
Service, that is, five days a week — 
a shortened form of Morning Prayer 
and Holy Communion, in which we 
join in the Anglican Cycle of prayer, 
which on each day remembers a Bish- 
op, a Diocese, and people of one of 
the Dioceses of the world-wide Angli- 
can Communion. We also remember 
each day in our own calendar of 
prayer, which I hope has come to 
your attention, and was so beautifully 
done by our Overseas Department, 
the rector, vestry, and people of one 
of our congregations in this Diocese. 
We feel deeply strengthened by once 
again having an Altar, and being 
able to share in the central act of the 
Christian life, the Holy Eucharist, in 
which we worship Almighty God. 

There will be no request for Epis- 
copal assistance at this Convention. 
The reason is that I have consulted 
with the Clergy of the Diocese on the 
need for a Suffragan Bishop, and it 
is their feeling, and I concur with 
them, that it will be better for the 
Diocese, for the Clergy, and for me, 
to have a period in which to shake 
down and get established. I know that 
many of you will react to this by say- 
ing it is not possible for one man to 
do the job, and this may be true. How- 
ever, the appointment of five Deans 
— one for each Convocation, men 
whose leadership and ability are re- 
spected by all, will be a tremendous 
help in the area of communication

and Diocesan planning. These Deans 
also sit as non-voting members of the 
Diocesan Council, and will have an 
opportunity to bring to the planning 
of the Diocese immediate reactions, 
needs, and resources of the Diocese. 
The Deans will also be in charge of 
arranging the Confirmations, which 
will take place by areas this coming 
year. This is a new phase in the Epis- 
copal ministry of this Diocese, but 
one with which we have experimented 
in the Charlotte area for two years, 
and which has been found most satis- 
factory. We hope it will remove Con- 

firmation from a kind of hit-and-run 
visit, and make the Bishop more avail- 
able to meet with vestries, clergy, and 
lay people, than was ever possible 
under the old system. Therefore, we 
do not feel completely handicapped 
by not asking for Episcopal assistance. 

In the same area, I am most grate- 
ful for the tremendous support and 
loyalty that have been demonstrated 
by members of the Diocesan Staff, 
the Deans of the Convocations, and 
the Department Heads of the Diocesan 
Council. It is only with the kind of 
support which they have given that it 


The Churchman 

has been possible to fulfill the very 
trying and heavy schedule since Bishop 
Baker's retirement. I have thus far 
been able to keep my calendar free 
from any out-of-the-Diocese appoint- 
ments, except for matters which per- 
tain to the Diocese and to my respon- 
sibilities as a member of the House 
of Bishops. However, with the con- 
struction of the new Diocesan House 
and changes in program and proce- 
dure, I would have been lost without 
the consecrated efforts of these peo- 

The roughest part of a Bishop's 
life, as far as I personally am con- 
cerned, is travel. This is especially 
true of week-end travel, which is in 
effect a net loss of two days from 
each week. This only gives you five 
days for your office work and meet- 
ings without any time for a breather. 
Our new plan for area visitations 
should make it possible to see more 
people, keep more appointments, and 
relieve the pressure of what has been 
thirty to thirty-five thousand miles of 
automobile travel in the Diocese, 
which does not include traveling out- 
side of the Diocese, each year. This 
should also leave more time for parish 
visits, such as dedications and special 
occasions, and un-hurried visitations to 
parishes. Please understand that area 
visitations do not mean that there will 
not be individual parish visitations, 
but there will not be one every year 
for Confirmation. We will be in your 
Convocation for Confirmation at least 
once a year. 

Four days of last month were spent 
in our Companion Diocese of Panama 
and the Canal Zone. The Student Cen- 
ter is completed. As you know, the 
Student Center was made possible by 
a gift from the Chapel of the Cross, 
contributions from various people of 
this Diocese, and largely by the Epis- 
copal Churchwomen. Our Companion 

Bishop Makes Opening Address 

Diocese has been most frugal in its 
stewardship of this money, and has 
produced a building which I wish 
every Communicant of this Diocese 
could see. It is beautiful. The design 
is handsome. The functional use of 
space is extraordinary. Although this 
building does not require central heat- 
ing and air conditioning, in my opinion 
it would cost well in excess of $100,- 
000.00 to produce a building of its kind 
in the States, as opposed to $48,000.00 
for the land and building in Panama. 
It is my hope that pictures of this 
building will be available to us so 
that you can see it in a forthcoming 
issue of The North Carolina 

You will also be interested in know- 
ing that members of the United States 
Government, the Assistant Minister of 
Education of the Republic of Panama, 
faculty members and students, were 
among a very large number of people 
who gathered for the Dedication on 
Sunday, January 16. The Chaplain at 
the Center is known to many of our 

clergy — the Rev. Anselmo Carral, 
a Refugee from Cuba, a most capable 
and well informed person. 

Another interesting side light is that 
the Archbishop of Panama has given 
permission to the Roman Catholic 
Chaplain, who has begun to work with 
students at the University of Panama, 
to request the use of the Altar in our 
Student Center for their Communion 
Services — and this permission has 
been granted by Bishop Gooden. 

In every respect, this tangible sign 
of our Companion Diocese relation- 
ship is evidence of being a great mis- 
sionary venture, and one in which we 
can join in great pride with our fel- 
low churchmen in Panama. 

At the last Diocesan Convention, I 
was instructed to appoint a Committee 
to study Sabbatical Leaves for the 
Clergy. You have received in your 
Convention Packet a report of this 
Committee, which was brought to- 
gether by the Rev. Charles Greene, 
and which very recently met with me. 
I commend this Report to you for 
study and further recommendation. 

At the last Convention, the Dele- 
gates made it possible for women to 
be elected to the vestries of parishes 
and missions. A number of congrega- 
tions have seized on this opportunity, 
and have acted accordingly. It is only 
fair that this Convention face the re- 
sponsibility of giving these women who 
have been elected to vestries and mis- 
sion committees the right to represent 
their congregations in Diocesan Con- 
vention. It is my understanding that 
a Canonical change will be presented, 
and in my opinion, it is only fair and 
just that any person elected to a ves- 
try or mission committee have the right 
to represent that congregation in this 
Diocesan assembly. 

Since the last Diocesan Convention, 
the Diocesan Council has instructed 
the Department of Missions to spend 

Mmes. Greene, Williams, Finch

its money where people are. This ac- 
tion was taken with the whole-hearted 
support of the Diocesan Council. It is 
very clear that the Council is begin- 
ning to feel the challenges of rapidly 
developing urban areas, colleges, and 
hospitals. I must remind all that this 
action on the part of the Diocesan 
Council calls for a new strategy in 
rural areas and in parts of the Diocese 
which are suffering from diminishing 
populations. Parishes and missions in 
these areas are in financial difficulty 
in meeting all their local and Diocesan 
obligations. The Department of Mis- 
sions, with my consent, has suggested, 
where possible, the elimination of du- 
plication of effort in these areas, and 
the development of one well-financed, 
well-supported, sufficiently staffed, 
properly programmed congregation in 
each of these counties. At present, in 
several counties our work is divided 
— we are scattering our shot — and 
consequently, the work is poorly sup- 
ported, when we might have one 
strong, well - established congrega- 
tion doing the work of the Lord, prop- 
erly and in a dignified manner. This 
is not only good evangelism and pro- 
gramming, but it is good stewardship 
of men and money. 

It is a well known fact that the 
largest segment of American society 
is the population under twenty-five 
years of age. This fact is recognized 
by modern industry and the political 
world. These young people form one 
of the largest markets of any group 
in the United States. They are also the 
greatest challenge facing the Church 
today. I ask that the Church in this 
Diocese make the Church school and 
youth work the number one priority, 
and beg of the laity to give the clergy 
their full support in meeting this chal- 
lenge with manpower, program, and 
financial support. 

It has come to my attention, and 
I feel that I must bring it to the at- 
tention of this Convention, that there 
is a law on the Statute Books of North 
Carolina which makes it difficult for 
a clergyman to have a privileged con- 
versation with a parishioner. I am also 
informed that a bill was before the 
last General Assembly to insure the 
right of privileged conversation be- 
tween a clergyman and his parishio- 
ners, and that this bill was defeated 
in Committee. 

The law reads: 

"8-53.1. Communications between 
clergymen and communicants. No 

Presiding Bishop Says a Word 

clergyman, ordained minister, priest, 
rabbi or accredited Christian Science 
practitioner of an established church 
or religious organization shall be re- 
quired to testify in any action, suit or 
proceeding, concerning any informa- 
tion which may have been confiden- 
tially communicated to him in his 
professional capacity under such cir- 
cumstances that to disclose the informa- 
tion would violate a sacred or moral 
trust, when the giving of such testi- 
mony is objected to by the communi- 
cant; provided, that the presiding 
judge in any trial may compel such 
disclosure if in his opinion the same 
is necessary to a proper administration 
of justice." 

It seems to me that if a communi- 
cant was given the choice to object 
to a Priest of this Church giving such 
testimony, that this communicant 
would prejudice his case in the eyes 
of the court. I feel it my responsi- 
bility to warn the clergy of this Diocese 
that the disclosing of a privileged con- 
versation with any parishioner or any 
person would violate the very nature 
of his Priesthood. I also feel it in- 
cumbent upon me to ask laymen who 
are concerned with the right of privi- 
leged conversation with a clergyman 
to use every lawful means to have this 
law stricken from the books of this 
State, or to have a law passed to pro- 
tect the nature of the Priesthood and 

Joseph B. Cheshire, Jr. 

the right of privileged conversation, oi 
as we call it, the Seal of the Confesses 
sional, as it is understood and prac 
tised by this Church. 

The institutional work of a church 
is one of the outward and visible sign: 
of its love for people. This Diocese 
has only one institution of which it is 
the sole owner, and for which it is 
the sole policy maker. This is the 
Penick Home for the Ageing in South 
ern Pines. Vade Mecum, our Summer 
Camp and Conference Center, is not 
owned by the Diocese. It is leased 
from the Winston-Salem Foundation 
until 1986, but we are the sole policy 
makers. In the case of all other in 
stitutions to which we contribute as ; 
Diocese, we share ownership and de 
cision making with two or more dio- 
ceses. This is true of Kanuga, the Uni- 
versity of the South, St. Mary's Jr. 
College, St. Augustine's, and the 
Thompson Orphanage. These institu- 
tions all demand our concern and sup- 
port. St. Augustine's College in Ra- 
leigh is not owned by this Diocese, 
but by its Board of Trustees. The 
Bishop of this Diocese is by Charter, 
Chairman of the Board — and St. 
Augustine's has for almost a century 
been a moral obligation of this Dio- 
cese. This college has very quickly 
become the second largest church-re- 
lated college of the Episcopal Church 
in the United States. St. Augustine's 
serves over seven hundred young men 
and women of the Negro race, in a 
commendable fashion, with a rapidly 
advancing program of upgrading aca- 
demic standards. St. Augustine's is in- 
volved in a program of expansion, and 
will be in the near future in a Capital 
Funds Campaign, which I feel it is a 
moral obligation of this Diocese and 
the people of this Diocese to support 
as generously and sincerely and whole- 
heartedly as they can. 

Now a word about the one institu- 
tion we own: I want to express my 
gratitude to those who made the Pen- 
ick Home for the Ageing a possibility. 
It is a great credit to our Diocese. It 
is now in good operation. It is not a 
home for the rich. Fifty per-cent or 
more of the people there are on a 
month-by-month guaranteed payment 
basis. The other guests or their fam- 
ilies did find it possible to make a 
lump sum payment. Those on a month- 
by-month basis are guaranteed either 
by their income, or by some agency, 
parish, or fund. The Home is doing 
a good job. It has a new look. It is 


The Churchman 

fulfilling that which those who worked 
•Hlto establish it visualized in the early 

days of its organization. Dr. George 
Penick, who has been President of the 
Home this past year, has done a splen- 
did job, and we are grateful to him. 
He has been wholeheartedly supported 
by two laymen, Mr. Ed Yaggy of 
Chapel Hill, and Mr. Ed Heyd of 
Salisbury. Without the support of 
these three lay persons, we could be 
less enthusiastic than we are. With 
he guidance and direction and sup- 
port of these lay persons and others 
who are serving on the Board, we feel 
that this Home holds a great future. 
The whole area of care for the ageing 
is changing so rapidly that we will 
constantly be re-thinking our program 
and long-range plans, and from time 
to time will be back to you with chal- 
lenges so that we may reach the full 
potential which this Home holds for 
those ageing persons in our Diocese. 
The time has come when it is our 
responsibility to include this institu- 
tion in our Church's Program Budget, 
and I hope that you will plan to do 
so no later than 1967. 

The Reports of all the institutions 
are in your Pre-Convention Packet, 
and qualified persons are present to 
answer any questions you may want 
to ask. 

And now in conclusion, the whole 
Anglican Communion has been in- 
spired by the program which we call 
M.R.I. — Mutual Responsibility and 
Inter-dependence in Christ. Each con- 
gregation in the Anglican Communion 
around the world is or should be giving 
this document and its implications seri- 
ous study and consideration. Our Di- 
ocesan Overseas Department, which 
will report later in this Convention, 
has launched this Diocese on a very 
serious study of this program as it in- 
volves us with our Companion Diocese, 
and will in the future be bringing to us 
the deeper, spiritual, and religious as- 
pects of M.R.I. Very simply, Mutual 
Responsibility and Interdependence 
in Christ can be summarized as — 
Do not fear a changing world, but 
meet this change with obedience to 
Christ. It seems to me as we survey 
the whole scene about us as Christians 
and as Anglican Churchmen, these 
words must be our motto and our

They came in Thunderbirds and 
Jeeps, in station wagons and Volks- 
wagens — not trailing clouds of glory 
(at least, not visibly), but clinking 
tire chains through February slush. 

Some of them came in the face of 
adversity. Like the poor soul from Ra- 
leigh who, bent upon getting an early 
start, crept out into the freezing dark- 
ness before dawn and braved icy streets 
to pick up several passengers. When 
the last suitcase was safely stowed in 
the trunk, he took off his overcoat, 
folded it neatly on top of them, and 
slammed the trunk shut. One second 
too late he remembered his car keys 
were in the pocket of his overcoat. 

To all comers, both early and late, 

the red brick church on the snow- 
piled hilltop gave a welcome so warm 
it was practically a heat wave. It be- 
gan with a big sign outside — "Wel- 
come Delegates, 150th Convention" — 
and the cheerful orange, of the traffic 
policeman's raincoat. It was expressed 
in smiles of greeting everywhere from 
the helpful registration people to the 
bustling host rector, the Rev. Floyd 
Finch, and his gracious wife, Leona, 
in her lovely raspberry red outfit. Even 
the janitors managed a benign, if 
somewhat surprised, smile as two near- 
sighted ladies from The Churchman 
bumbled their way through the Boiler 

Everywhere also was an unspoken 
welcome in the thoughtfulness which 
had arranged car pools for visiting

clergy wives, placed coat racks in every 
nook and corner, neatly hand-lettered 
signs over every single door, count- 
less arrows on walls, note pads in 
every pew, and a typewriter, telephone 
and ashtray in the Press Room. And 
the Hospitality Room never gave out 
of coffee, even after the closing 
"Amen" had been said in the Con- 

Tuesday morning at Holy Comforter 
saw sober grey business suits and black 
clerical garb predominating as usual in 
church conventions. But this 150th had 
a new look. Suits of pink and red and 
colorful tweeds (like Mrs. Fraser's 
striking blue and green costume) 
brightened the scene. The bevy of 
bright-eyed, attractive clergy wives, at- 
tending their first convention, re- 
mained on the scene until after the 
Bishop's address, when they departed 
for their own meeting at Christ Church. 

What goes on at a meeting of clergy 
wives? First a greeting by Mr. Finch, 
who assured the group he wouldn't 
talk long because "Big John's a- 
coming!" (the Presiding Bishop, whose 
arrival at the Convention that after- 
noon brought a standing ovation). Mr. 
Finch urged the ladies to forget home, 
church and kids, and "just have a good 
time." They took his advice, but only 
the last part. 

First of all, they didn't forget the 
church. In fact, they showed consider- 
able interest in its business as the Rev. 
Charles Greene, director of program, 
briefed them on the Convention. Mr. 
Greene then introduced visitors Mrs. 
Alice Goodson (whose father-in-law 
received one of the Bishop's Award 
Plaques Tuesday afternoon) and Mrs. 
Agnes Willis, both from Winston- 
Salem, and Mrs. Marjorie Cashmore, 
wife of the Rt. Rev. Thomas M. Cash- 
more, lord bishop of Dunwich, En- 
gland. It's a small world even at church 
conventions, for here Mrs. Cashmore, 
whose husband has spent working va- 
cations in America for over twenty 
years, found a fellow countryman in 
Dorothy Collins, of Thomasville. Mrs. 
Collins is a native of Gloucestershire, 
England. The two had a very British- 
sounding discussion on the merits of 
tea versus coffee. 

Vivacious Gloria Greene, who had 
helped her husband prepare the wom- 
en's program, introduced new brides 
and wives of clergy new to the Diocese; 
and everyone proceeded to get ac- 

Mrs. Moore, Mrs. Fraser 

The fun really got rolling at the ex- 
cellent luncheon, served by the St. 
Elizabeth's Guild of Christ Church, 
and subsequent Hat Fashion Show, 
staged by Mrs. Harbeck, manager of 
the hat department at Ivey's depart- 
ment store. While delegates back at 
the Convention occupied their minds 
with amendments, reports and yellow 
and blue ballot sheets, the ladies had 
gay yellow daisy toppers and blue 
silk Dior turbans on their minds. Head- 
hugging hats of flamboyant spring 
flowers brought admiring "oh's!," 
while shiny red and pale pink straws 
"to make an old navy suit" drew ap- 
preciative smiles and applause. 

The display which followed of "Liv- 
ing Wigs" (impervious to every haz- 
ard except lighted cigarettes) and 
"Wiglets" ("for those of us who might 
need just a little bit of hair"), pro- 
duced reactions ranging from serious 
interest to giggles, snickers and out- 
right hilarity. Especially when jolly 
brunette Jean Ladehoff, of St. Chris- 
topher's — Charlotte, extemporane- 
ously modelled an ash blonde wig. 
("Wait'll Bob sees this!")

Children (never forgotten, of course 
were one of the chief topics of conver- 
sation over Wednesday morning coffee 
in the cafeteria of the First Union Na- 
tional Bank. "When I got home lasl 
night, the baby sitter had fed her a 
whole box of animal cookies!" wailed a 
young Charlotte wife. 

Volunteer work and full-time jobs 
were also talked about. For some find 
time not only for the job of being a 
clergy wife but for other occupations 
as well. People like Carolyn Thomas, 
of Holy Comforter, who hurried home 
after the Tuesday session to prepare 
lessons for her Second Grade elemen- w 
tary school class. And people like Mary jut 
Williams, of St. Peter's, Charlotte, whc f j 
does volunteer hospital work, librarian B tc 
Lydia Wilkins, of St. Michael and AH ^ 
Angels, Charlotte, Theron Sapp, of $ 
Christ Church, Raleigh, who does | s 
adoption investigations, Mary Ruth ^ 
Stone, of Graham, a day-care con- ^ 
sultant with the State Board of Public ^ 
Welfare, and Polly Mead, of Holy i 
Family, Chapel Hill, a counselor with { 
the Poverty Program. ^ 

The group then adjourned to the E 
top floor of the building, where a gi- m 
gantic walnut table in the luxurious , 0[ 
black and gold Board of Directors' ^ 
Room seated nearly all 45 of the y 
clergy wives around its polished ex- j, 
panse. The massive black leather i 
chairs were obviously not designed for 
anyone as small and humble as aj v 
clergyman's wife, but the subject of jf 
"Family Budgeting" obviously was. u 
They all showed a lively interest in m 
the talk made by Mrs. Helen Ward- 
law, a Senior Vice President, listed in ^ 
Who's Who Among American Women, ^ 
and, as Mrs. Finch introduced her, ^ 
"a great Episcopalian." 

Pointing out that churches and other ^ 
institutions live by a budget, Mrs. | a ] 
Wardlaw said that "home is the greatest ,|] 
institution on earth and therefore must |, 
be treated as an institution." She ad- t | 0 
vised the women to "make your moneyj R 
do what you want it to" by deciding onj ^ 
definite goals, fitting goals to income ( 
and calculating carefully what will bring 
the most gain. However, she em- jf 
phasized that a budget is simply a i 
guide to spending, which should not f 
be inflexible; and in which it would I 
be well to include at least a small 101 
fund labelled "H.O.K."— for "Heaven * 
Only Knows" what expenses! 

The heated discussion which fol- ^ 
lowed Mrs. Wardlaw's talk was con- 
tinued downstairs in the lobby and Q

a iven out into the wet, grey city street. 
1 Jut the thing that really got the ladies 
^ ip in the air was the penthouse ele- 
vator at the North Carolina National 
^ lank. Here was the high point of their 

0 activities. Just as the heavy decor at 
H ? irst Union had suited the weighty 
^ ubject there, the light, airy, white- 
1" arpeted NCNB penthouse was a per- 

1 ect setting for the relaxed gaiety of 
'J he luncheon honoring Mrs. Fraser. 

^ A delicious meal was served at long 
ables decked with yellow, purple and 
j< dike flowers. Mrs. Fraser looked 
I ovely and chic, as always, in a grey 
vool dress with zebra belt. At the head 
able with her were guests Mrs. Ai- 
red Cole, wife of the late Bishop, and 
Ais. Cashmore. Florence Moore, of 
It. Martin's, Charlotte, declared it was 
Marge Fraser Day," and presented a 
hoss green wedgewood flower bowl 
ull of daffodils, red tulips, yellow chry- 
anthemums and baby's breath "as a 
ittle token of love and esteem." 

Mrs. Fraser, after exclaiming, "Isn't 
hat lovely! I'll treasure it," said she 
vas "deeply touched" by the gift, 
vhich would blend with her living 
oom. She then brought greetings from 
tvives of other Bishops, notably Mrs. 
Baker and Mrs. Penick, who were un- 
ible to attend and were very much 
missed by all present. Mrs. Fraser 
plosed by saying, "There isn't a place 
ve'd rather be than North Carolina 
'or the next 17 years." 

Certainly no place could be hap- 
pier to have the Frasers than North 
Carolina. This was evident from the 
jreat outpouring of love and rever- 
jnce which characterized the installa- 
:ion service on Tuesday night. But, as 
Vlrs. Fraser had said in an interview 
jarlier, it was "the Episcopal Church's 
3ay. Not any individual's." 

In a way, the service was like the 
Church itself — a blend of tradi- 

tional ceremony and modern com- 
munication. The pageant of red and 
black cassocks, white vestments and 
scarlet academic hoods lined with pur- 
ple, orange, gold and blue was resplen- 
dent in the glare of TV lights. The

ancient glory of the Te Deum, with 
accompanying drums and trumpet 
fanfares, rang among the lofty, cathe- 
dral-like arches of Covenant Presby- 
terian Church. In quieter moments the 
sibilant voice of TV commentator the 
Rev. Frank Fagan, of Trinity Church, 

Host Chairman, Rector 

Statesville, could be heard speaking 
into his microphone. On the one hand, 
there was the long, colorful procession 
of civic and religious dignitaries, bish- 
ops and diocesan clergy, and the 
three resounding knocks at the door 
with which Bishop Fraser petitioned 
to be inducted into the Bishopric of 
North Carolina. On the other hand, 
was the TV director nervously eyeing 
his monitor, and the blunt, black nose 
of the TV camera protruding from 
green curtains behind the choir to pan 
the congregation. At a particularly im- 
pressive moment of the service, old 
and new came together, as retired 
Bishop Richard Baker handed the 
massive sparkling silver Pastoral Staff 
to the new Shepherd — an ancient 
symbol of modern responsibilities. 

In his sermon the Bishop called for 
"an ordained and lay ministry" to 
share the burden of the Church's re- 
sponsibility to "space-age man." His 
congregation was evidently very much 
awake, for they afterwards sang the 
National Anthem with a mighty en- 
thusiasm, especially the line — "Then 
conquer we must!" One clergyman 
later confessed that he swelled with 
pride so much he burst his cincture. 

And, speaking of clerical garb, 
probably no one present at the service 
was more impressed by the array of 
clergymen than the lady who, having 
read "Clergy: Tippet and Hood" on 
her invitation, thought it meant the af- 
fair would be conducted by the Rev. 
Messrs. Tippet and Hood; and won- 
dered why she had never heard of 
them in this diocese before. (Must be 
some of those New York boys?) 

In the words of another clergyman 
(North Carolinian, this time), the 
service was "a good production." The 
same could be said of the Convention 
itself, from opening prayers to the 
final "Amen" on Wednesday after- 

Floors and pews at Holy Comforter 
were littered with piles of ballot sheets, 
used note pads and other evidences of 
the work accomplished. A late after- 
noon sun slanted over the white lace 
altarcloth like a benediction. A few 
delegates stood chatting in small 
groups. Bishop Fraser rubbed his eyes, 
put on his glasses and gathered up his 
papers. As the Altar Guild began dis- 
mantling and dusting, cars roared 
away down the hill, and the church, 
like the small statue of St. Francis 
outside, stood quietly waiting to re- 
ceive its next flock. (End)

Details Are Revealed Regarding 
March Spring Planning Days 

Spring Planning Days for Episcopal 
Churchwomen are to be held in each 
of the five convocations during the 
last two weeks of March. The purpose 
of these leadership training sessions is 
to help Churchwomen in their plan- 
ning for next year — planning in 
which worship, study, action and out- 
reach are coordinated in effective pro- 
grams on the parish level. Diocesan 
Churchwomen officers and the Di- 
ocesan Office of Program plan and lead 
these sessions. 

The design for these Planning Days 
will follow the same pattern in each 
convocation and will be much like last

years'. The greater part of the morn- 
ing will be devoted to the real "heart" 
of the program — the simultaneous 
workshop sessions in Administration, 
devotional life, Christian social rela- 
tions and Christian education (each 
conducted by the corresponding di- 
ocesan officer. And new this year will 
be a workshop called "Outreach." The 
new "Outreach" group will include mis- 
sions, United Thank Offering, supply, 
college work and Christian ministries, 
Church Periodicals Club, and altar 
work and exchange. 

Following the workshops will come 
lunch, a short convocation business 
meeting at the lunch hour, and a brief 
but important afternoon summary ses- 
sion designed to bring the whole day 
into focus. 

Invited to participate in the Plan- 
ning Days are at least five women 
from each parish. In order for these 
Planning Days to be of any real value

on the local level it is important tha, „ r 
each branch send a representative i 
each of these five areas. The presiL, 
dent, the secretary of devotional life 
the secretary of Christian social rela Z 
tions, and the secretary of Christiai ^ 
education should each make a ver w 
special effort to attend. Where this i ^ 
absolutely impossible each officer 
urged to be certain that she is repreAjj 
sented by a substitute. In the "Out ^ 
reach" area it is asked that at leas ^ 
one person come from each parish t* | 
cover this area. In other words, 
branches where a number of these job 
are combined under one officer, sh 
would be able to represent this entir< 
group. Where only one of these of 
ficers is able to attend, the worksho] 
is so designed that she may cover thi 
area for the entire "Outreach" group 
Convocation officers will assist witl 
the workshop held by their Diocesai 
counterpart, and will be in large mea 
sure responsible for "follow-up" as 
sistance to the parishes. 

The clergy from each parish is in 

The Churchma 



ited and urged to attend with their 
:hurchwomen. The design for these 
ays emphasizes coordination of all 
reas into effective program, and the 
articipation of the clergy will be a 
ital determining factor in the success 
f this effort. 

Plans for the individual workshops 
which will be held simultaneously) 
rill be much the same as last year, ex- 
B ept that more time is planned for 
scussion and interchange of ideas 
nd experiences. Mrs. W. H. R. Jack- 
ie 5n, diocesan president, will discuss 
ith the branch presidents in the Ad- 
inistration workshop their role in 
I lanning this coordinated program; 
a leir problems; and procedures which 
le deems helpful or effective in prob- 
m-solving, evaluation and planning. 
In the field of Christian social rela- 
| ons, Mrs. William P. Price, diocesan 
jcretary, will deal with the whats, 
r hys and hows in this area of Chris- 
an action. The secretary of devo- 
onal life, Mrs. William Holloman, 
talk about leading group worship; 
uiet days, retreats, and other phases 
Jjf her work. Christian education, led 
,e fy Mrs. E. S. Knight, will deal with 
tudy methods and procedures; and in 
. lore detail with available study ma- 
Vials and evaluation and discussion 
f these. Each leader will have pre- 
ared "take-home" outlines and bibli- 
graphies in her area. 

The new outreach workshop will 
perate in a different manner and will 
e chaired by the convocation chair- 
lan or someone appointed by her. 
lere presentations will be made to 
fie entire group by the chairmen of 
1 Missions, supply, UTO, college work, 
;PC and altar work. The session is 
lanned in this manner so that the 
iicture of Outreach may be seen as a 
/hole; and also so that where neces- 
ary, or desired, one person may repre- 
ent her branch in all of these areas. 
Time is to be allowed following the 
resentations for discussion and for 
onsultation in individual interest 

Simons Allison will give the Edwin A. 
Penick Lectures March 1 and 2 at the 
University of North Carolina, Greens- 
boro. The lectures will begin at 7:30 
p.m. each night. A native of South 
Carolina, Dr. Allison holds degrees 
from the University of South Carolina, 
University of the South, Virginia Theo- 
logical Seminary and from Oxford Uni- 
versity. He is associate professor of 
church history at Sewanee. He served 
as rector of Trinity Church in Colum- 
bia and as chaplain to Episcopal stu- 
dents at his state university from 1952- 
54. He is the author of two books: 
"Fear, Love and Worship" and "The 
Rise of Moralism." 

Also new this year is a request for 
those planning to attend to do "Home- 
work." Whereas last year evaluation 
was asked for at the end of the day, 
it is urged that a part of this year's 
evaluation be done beforehand. Each 
participant will be asked to consider 
the past strengths and weaknesses of 
her particular area in her particular 
branch, and to give some considera- 
tion to the direction in which it should 
move in the future. Forms for this 
will be included in the prospectus. 

In the summary session planned for 
the afternoon it is hoped that parish 
groups can begin then and there to 
make definite plans for next year's 
program; to make at least a broad out- 
line, leaving only details to be filled 
in later. The Rev. Charles Greene, 
director of program for the Diocese, 
will be in charge of this and the in- 
troductory session. Mrs. E. S. Knight is 
general chairman. 

A prospectus for Spring Planning 
days will be mailed late in February 
to each branch, hopefully in time for 
the March board meeting. It will in- 
clude a statement of purpose; the who, 
what, when, where, why's for each 
meeting; a summary of each work- 
shop; schedule for the day; registra- 

tion blank; and homework forms.

The Churchmoi 

Church of the Month 

St. Mark's, Wilson 

The Rev. B. S. Bronson, a former 
rector of St. Timothy's Church in Wil- 
son, was instrumental in organizing St. 
Mark's Episcopal in Wilson in 1887. 

The Rev. F. W. Dunn was the St. 
Mark's first rector and he served for 
one year. In 1888, the Rev. John W. 
Perry of Tarboro became priest in 
charge. The church and parochial 
school were built in 1891. 

The late John H. Clark was the first 
teacher in the church school. A lay 
reader, he worked under the super- 
vision of St. Timothy's Church for a 
long period, and during the rector- 
ship of The Rev. F. D. Deans, when 
the present church site was purchased. 

The late priest of the church was 
the Rev. Robert J. Johnson, D.D., who 
was here during 1910 while he also 
served St. Titus' Episcopal Church in 
Durham. In 1943 he was sent to 
Wilson by the late Bishop Penick. 
Since that time, officials report, the 
church has experienced a "remarkable 

The church building has been re- 
modeled. The parish rooms have been 
added, and a seven-room rectory has 
been built. 

The present priest is the Rev. Al- 
bert T. J. Heath, who has served one 
year. The congregation is still small 
but its members are working earnestly 
to increase the membership and meet 

their obligations. 

St. Timothy's continues to take 
vital interest in St. Mark's.

Meaning of Easter 

There are two ways — the way of life and the way of death. 

The way of life never seems to make sense until a man seriously faces 
his own death. Then life takes on a new look. As they say, "Life becomes 
real and beautiful." Life can very easily be phony until one truly faces his 
personal death. 

This is the story of Easter. Out of death came life. The Risen Life of 
Christ made His earthly life not historical, but authentic — "truly this was 
the Son of God." 

There are those who stand by and debate "God is dead" or "He is out 
there or in here," or struggle for a new way to avoid it all. 

There are only two ways — the way of life and the way of death. The way 
to new life is the way of the Cross and the Resurrection. 

Faithfully in Christ, 
Thomas A. Fraser

Churchman Editorial Board 

< Lent — A most interesting new idea 
a n Lenten programs is being carried 
ut in Durham this year. The four 
episcopal churches of the city (St. 
Philip's, St. Luke's, St. Stephen's, and 
t. Titus) are jointly sponsoring a study 
ourse series with four different classes 
eld each Sunday night at St. Philip's, 
here is a choice of classes in "The 
Radical Theology," led by a profes- 

sor from Duke Divinity School; "God's 
Will and Ours," by Chaplain Will 
Spong; "The Gospel of St. John," by 
one of the rectors and another Duke 
professor; and "The Church in the Ur- 
ban Community," by assorted lecturers. 

Variety — In other parishes through- 
out the Diocese there is great variety 
in Lenten programs and studies. Sub- 
jects include the Psalms, the Prayer 
Book; the mission study; Bible studies, 

book studies (eg. "The Comfortable 
Pew,"); "Why Suffering?"; and a 
School of Prayer. Many parishes are 
having joint studies with other Epis- 
copal churches, some with other de- 
nominations; many are having visiting 
preachers and speakers from within 
and without the Diocese. One church 
will do without altar flowers as a sym- 
bol of abstainence; one will learn and 
use the American Folk Mass. One has 
"Do it Yourself Kits" from which one 

hr pril 1966 


may design his own Lent; another has 
"Lenten Survival Kits." 

Pancakes — Harking back through 
Lent to Shrove Tuesday, there were 
enough pancakes cooked and served 
that evening by various EYC's, scouts, 
laymen and lay ladies that if laid flap 
to flap would have completely blan- 
keted the Diocese (not to mention the 
rivers of syrup, the lakes of butter 
and the unending trail of sausages). 
In the immortal words of Boy Wonder, 
"Holy Heartburn!" 

New Bulletins — It is most heartening 
to have six parishes add us to their 
mailing list this month. They are St. 
James, Kannapolis; St. Stephen's, Er- 
win; St. Timothy's, Winston-Salem; 
Church of the Holy Family, Chapel 
Hill; Church of the Epiphany, Leaks- 
ville; and Church of the Good Shep- 
herd, Raleigh. 

More Ladies — Trinity Church, Scot- 
land Neck, broke a tradition of 228 
years standing to elect the first woman 
ever to serve on the vestry. She is 
Mrs. Balfour Dunn. Mrs. Norris Hodg- 
kins was elected to the vestry of Em- 
manuel Church, Southern Pines. St. 
Joseph's, Durham, has two, Mrs. Joyce 
Avery, and Miss Susana Berry. 

New Organ — Church of the Epiph- 
any, Leaksville, is enjoying a new 
$8,000 pipe organ. It replaces an old 
reed organ which was part of the 
church for many years, and which is 
now being used by St. Mary's by the 
Highway. The Rev. Charles S. Cook, 
Jr., is rector of Epiphany and T. Hays 
Barker is organist. 

Lay School — Final session of the Lay

for the Terraces May 5 to 7. Lay- 
men who attended last year felt the 
conference to be of such value that 
they requested it be repeated for 
others. This is the third such dialogue 
conference planned in the Diocese. 
The first was with social workers and 
the next will be with doctors. 

Fifty Years— Mr. C. W. Byrd, re-

Warden Emeritus. The Rev. Parker 
Marks is rector of All Saints. 

For Loan — The vestry of St. An- 
drew's, Charlotte, offers for loan a

Greene Named — On nomination of 
the Joint Commission on Ecumenical 
Relations and the Joint Commission of 
Human Affairs, in consultation with 
the Joint Staff Committee on Family 
Life, the Presiding Bishop of the Epis- 
copal Church has invited the Rev. 
Charles Greene to serve as one of the 
delegates of the Episcopal Church to 
the Second North American Confer- 
ence on Church and Family. This con- 
ference will be held May 30 to June 
3, at McMaster University, Hamilton, 
Ontario, Canada. At the conference, 
the Episcopal Church will have a quota 
of four persons out of approximately 
500. Mr. Greene has accepted this in- 
vitation and is most pleased to repre- 
sent our Church. The urgency of the 
issues to be discussed in this Confer- 
ence should be of tremendous value 
to the churches throughout the world 
and especially to our own families here 
in North Carolina who are well aware 
of what mobility has done to family 
life as well as the much-discussed sub- 
ject of "The New Morality." 

Join Women — The Women's Guild 
of St. Alban's Church, Davidson, re-

bury- Western in Evanston, 111. in Janu- 
ary. While there he studied contem- 
porary theology under Dr. J. V. 
VLangmead Casserly. Mr. Whitaker's 
[visit was under the sponsorship of the 
peabury Fellowship Program which in- 
cites graduates to return for a time of 
academic and spiritual renewal, during 
jwhich he follows a directed reading 
and study program in a field of his 
own choosing.

CONFERENCE DELEGATION— Here is the delegation from the Diocese of 
North Carolina at the recent Third Province Leadership Training Institute at 
the Roslyn Conference Center in Richmond. From left are: Mrs. Mildred Draper, 
Rocky Mount; Captain Osborne Mauck, Salisbury; the Rev. William Dennis, 
Huntersville; the Rev. Robert Davis, Henderson; and Mrs. LeRoy McGettigan, 

AA Meeting — Grace Church, Lex- 
ington, will have the local chapter of 
Alcoholics Anonymous meet there each 
week, thus joining a number of other 
churches in the Diocese who offer this 
cooperation. The Rev. Lea Powell, IV, 
is rector. 

From Elkin — The Rev. J. Donald 
Partington who served Galloway Me- 
morial Church, Elkin, on a part-time 
basis has resigned. He also served the 
church at Galax, Va., in the Diocese 
of Southewstern Virginia, where he was 
canonically a resident. 

EYC Convention 

The annual meeting of the Epis- 
copal Young Churchmen is sched- 
uled April 15-17 at St. Michael's 
Church in Raleigh. The Rev. 
James Beckwith is the host rector. 

The 1966 gathering will begin 
with a 6:30 p.m. supper on the 
opening day. 

A highlight of this year's affair 
will be a reading of the play, "The 
Cup of Trembling" by Miss Eliza- 
beth Berryhill. The play deals with 
the life of Deitrich Bonhoeffer, 
the German pastor who defied 
Hitler and died in 1945 at the 
hands of the Gestapo. 

Miss Susan Lashley of St. An- 
drews Church at Greensboro, cur- 
rent EYC president, will preside. 

Disappointed— Note is taken of the 
fact that St. Mary's, High Point, de- 
plores the fact that their Christmas 
offering totaled only $839.68 — 
$160.32 shy of hopeful minumum 
(that was as of mid-January). The 
offering goes to St. Paul's, Panama. 
Many other churches might like to be 
so greatly disappointed! 

New Rectory — Messiah Church, 
Rockingham, has a new rectory, com- 
plete with rector and family as of mid- 
dle January. The Rev. and Mrs. John 
Tucker moved into the new house on 
January 13. 

Vestry Retreats — A number of ves- 
tries with their rectors have held re- 
treats recently at The Terraces in 
Southern Pines. The Rev. Thomas E. 
Bollinger and his vestry went from 
Holy Comforter, Burlington, early 
in January. Of particular interest was 
the means of transportation used by 
the vestry of St. John's, Charlotte to 
get back home from a retreat there 
late in January. Two members flew 
their planes over, and six of the vestry 
winged their way back. The Rev. Mar- 
tin Tilson is rector. 

Lenten Study — Something new in 
the way of Lenten study is to take 
place in Durham this year, with the

Church At Worship Subject: 




Clergy and lay people from across the Diocese will gather in the Church 
of the Good Shepherd in Raleigh May 11, 12 and 13 for a Conference 
on the Church at Worship to consider the following: 

"The worship of God is worthy of the best the church has and can pro- 
duce — in words, music, in drama, in painting, in sculpture, in design, in 
crafts. What is best? Can we recognize it?" 

For two years, a steering committee — consisting of Henry Lewis, Mrs. 
James E. Davis, Mrs. Milton Zauber, The Rev. Messrs. O'Kelley Whitaker, 
Bartine Sherman, Albert Nelius and Charles Greene — has been at work 
planning this conference. "Worship of Almighty God is supposed to be the 
most noble act in which we can participate," the steering committee says. 
"It should be the impetus for all of our social actions and Christian nurture. 
Worship requires that we take seriously our God and ourselves." 

Outstanding leaders from across the State and Nation will lead the con- 
ference. The Rev. Canon Edward West of the Cathedral of St. John the 
Divine in New York City will be the keynoter. 

Dr. Mary Catherine Bateson, an anthropologist on the faculty of Harvard 
University, will help answer the question: "Why does man need ritual in 
his life?" 

Drama has been a useful tool of the Church throughout the ages. James 
Malcolm, who teaches at Hope College in Holland, Mich, and who is known 
nationally for his work in drama, will discuss this aspect of worship and 
conduct workshops. 

The stained glass windows, the cross, and other Christian symbols found 
throughout the Church are regarded as valid instruments of worship. Dr. 
John Dixon, who teaches in the Department of Religion and the Art De- 
partment of the University of North Carolina, will discuss the reason for 
having these symbols. 

The church building itself is said to be an expression of faith, as well as 
a means of providing an atmosphere for worship. This will be the assign- 
ment of Dean Henry Kamphoefner of the School of Design at North Caro- 
lina State University in Raleigh. 

As a result of the work of Mrs. Harriet Zauber of Greensboro repre- 
sentative items from woodcarving, altar furnishings, architecture, and simple 
linens will be exhibited during the conference. Mrs. Robert LeMay of 
Raleigh, assisted by a group of local Raleigh residents, will be in charge of 
these exhibits and will stand ready to answer questions. Mr. Whitaker of 
Salisbury is known for his work in preparing various Diocesan services. He 
and other members of the Music Commission will be in charge of all of the 
services during the conference and the workshops on music. 

The general chairman of the conference is Mr. Greene who is director of 
program for the Diocese.

Retirement — Note is made by the 
Rev. Martin Caldwell of Emmanuel 
Church, Southern Pines, of the retire- 
ment of the Rev. Dr. Francis Craig- 
hill Brown as professor of Pastoral 
Theology at Berkeley Devinity School 
in California. Dr. Brown was rector 
of Emmanuel Church from 1930 to 
1948, when he became Dean of the 
School of Theology at the University 
of the South. He went to Berkeley in 
the early fifties. Quoting Mr. Cald- 
well: "We begin the 75th Anniver- 
sary Celebration of Emmanuel Church 
and also to mark the 35th Anniver- 
sary of his coming, we had Craighill in 
Southern Pines in early November . . . 
I was struck then at the enormity of 
this man's influence, a fact which, since 
he has been away from us some seven- 
teen or eighteen years, we often over-

ruary issue of Christian Education 
Findings. The play explains the Church

dren. Mrs. Draper is director of Chris- 
tian education at Church of the Good 
Shepherd, Rocky Mount. 

Cooperation — From the Rev. 
Carl E. Jones of Church of the Mes- 
siah, Mayodan, comes news of a year 
of real inter-church cooperation among 
the Methodist, Moravian and Episco- 
pal Churches in Mayodan. It began 
last Lent with joint Ash Wednesday 
services. Then followed a summer 
youth week program, which included 
not only these churches but also in- 
cluded churches in Madison and 
reached around 100 young persons in 
the area. Then the three Mayodan 
churches used the Moravian Christian 
Education Building for a joint daily 
vacation bible school. From the Wa- 
chovia Moravian which carried an in- 
teresting story about this, we quote: 
"Through these various efforts the ecu- 
menical spirit of inter-church coopera- 
tion has been brought into the life of 
the local congregations . . . They 
have found they could do things to- 
gether that they could not have done 
as well or at all — separately. 

Newsmakers — Members of St. Ste- 
phen's Church, Durham, have been 
much in the local newspapers of late. 
The Rev. J. W. S. Davis, rector, sent 
a series of clippings which include 

these stories about his parishoners: j(

Miss Durham Beauty Contest: Miss 
Jennifer Salinger, EYC vice presi- 1

Variety Of Diocesan Affairs 
Explored In Mr. Greene's Talk 

Editor's Note: Following is an 
address made at the 150th con- 
vention by the Rev. Charles R. 
Greene, director of program for 
the Diocese. Mr. Greene's report 
on various diocesan affairs was 
presented on the second day of 
the Charlotte gathering. 

\ Bishop Fraser, Delegates, Guests: 
Several months ago one of the top 

officials of the Protestant Episcopal 

"hurch in these United States said: 
"Observing the Dioceses within our 

Church is fascinating. If I were asked 

0 rate them, the Diocese of North 
Carolina would be among the top five 
f not at the very top." 

Many similar statements have been 
nade in several places during the past 
ew years. 

Only last week a reporter from one 
>f the leading newspapers in this State 

"I just had an interview with one 

1 the Bishops of the Episcopal Church, 
ie mentioned any number of things 
aking place in his Diocese which he 

thought were new, different, exciting 
and vital. Although I said nothing, I 
thought to myself, 'everything he has 
mentioned has been going on in North 
Carolina for sometime.' Why don't you 
folks sound off more?" 

Sounding off or tooting our own 
horns or drawing attention to ourselves 
has never been a part of the tradi- 

Mr. Greene Makes Address 

tion of our Diocese. But, we have 
been told in several ways recently that 
being humble and quiet js proper and 
admirable but when overdone it can 
be a serious fault. 

We have failed to bring to the at- 
tention of our lay people especially 
what is significant and outstanding 
and important, not only to ourselves 
but to the Church-at-large. Coupled 
with this fact is another which our 
Bishop and Diocesan staff feel 
strongly. It is that we have not said 
"thank you" enough to the hundreds 
of communicants in this Diocese who 
have given so freely of their money, 
their professional training and their 
time to the work of the Church. 

Today, permit me to cite some in- 
stances when this Diocese through you 
has participated in the top leadership 
of the Church and to give you some 
examples of how we have made in- 
teresting and constructive contributions 
to the life of the Church. 

Four years ago we adopted the rec- 
ommendations of the Structure and 
Organization Report. This study took 
months to prepare. We knew a study 
was needed and so we did it. But you 
should know that hundreds of these 
reports have been mailed to other Dio- 
ceses across the country, as well as to 
our own national offices. Presently, our 
National Home Department is spend- 

pril 1966 


ing a majority of its energies trying to 
get Dioceses to look at their structures 
and organizations in order to meet to- 
day's needs and programs, and our 
study often is suggested to them as a 

As a result of the study on structure 
and organization, the office of Busi- 
ness Manager was established. This of- 
fice is found in other dioceses but it is 
still not a common office; and, cer- 
tainly we realize greatly the benefit 
of having a Business Manager who 
takes care of all of our business af- 
fairs and especially one who is legally 

Sometime later, over three years ago, 
the Office of Director of Program was 
established also. Again, we thought 
having one office serve as staff to all 
the departments, attempting to coordi- 
nate and stimulate them, as well as 
other committees and commissions, 
would be a very good idea. We paid 
little or no attention to the fact that 
only two other dioceses in the coun- 
try had such an office. Today there 
are over fifteen Directors of Program 
and nearly all 15 have sought detailed 
information from us. This office is 
now in its fourth year. It has made it 
possible for one person, either the Di- 
rector or Ass't. Director to go to all of 
the Diocesan department meetings as 
well as national ones. Therefore, it is 
now easier for us to have a fuller 
understanding of and participation in 
the total life and mission of the Protes- 
tant Episcopal Church. 

We now have two hospital chap- 
lains. This is something novel across 
the land, and ministries that have re- 
ceived national attention. Here in this 
Diocese we thought when people are 
sick enough to come to one of our 
great medical centers in Durham or 
Charlotte, they are in special need of 
the services and pastoral care of the 

College Work is a most important 
ministry in our Diocese. We have a 
high percentage of Episcopal students 
in our schools. We have seven full- 
time chaplains. 

While it is popular to have "new 
forms of the Christian ministry," as 
indeed our college and hospital chap- 
lains are, this is not our reason for 
providing these services. Our reason 
is to serve the sick and our college 
students, both of whom need special 
pastoral care and love. 

This is an age of store-front

churches. We have one as a result of 
the people and clergy in the Burling- 
ton area. We had a church in the 
area which really wasn't reaching the 
people and we wanted the people to 
be reached. Therefore, our friends in 
Burlington thought they might try 
having a quiet place in a shopping 
center for people to drop in, to pray, 
to read, to rest. Time Magazine and 
others have seen this as exceptional 
and outstanding. We see it as another

The Churchman ^ 

When we think of what this Diocese 
is doing in the area of conferences 
and programs, we find again we are 
a bit exceptional. 

Bishop Fraser keeps saying: "Please 
do a few things well — don't attempt 
too much." 

Some of you here attended the 
Changing Culture Conference in Char- 
lotte. This Conference sought to help 
us look seriously at the situation in 
which we live and work. Our Diocese 
said a conference of this sort should 
3e open to lay people and clergy. Our 
lational offices told us this kind of 
conference was designed only for the 
clergy. We insisted and found ourselves 
he first Diocese in the country to hold 
iuch a conference for lay people as 
veil as clergy. We were not trying to 
>e different, we simply knew there are 
nore lay people in our changing cul- 
ure than clergy. 

Realizing the necessity of being as 
horoughly informed of population 
hifts, area growth and development, 
>r the lack of it, this Diocese brought 
Captain Osbourne Mauck of the 
Church Army here in 1961 to do sur- 
'ey work. Our Diocese was the fifth or 
ixth to do this on a full-time basis,

Our Lay School of Theology, which 
pened this year, is unique in that the 
Jishop who licenses the men thought 
lat some opportunity to instruct them 
hould be provided by the Diocese, 
articularly in light of the new canon 
overning lay readers. 

Our Dialogue Conferences are spe- 
ifically our own. Thus far they have 
iken place between social workers 
nd clergy and businessmen and clergy, 
he National Church looks upon this 
s a new and exciting form of evan- 
elism and study of Christian ministry, 
hese Dialogue Conferences help us 
> explore an important fact of Chris- 
anity — that there is one Lord, one 
lith, on hope, one baptism and one 
Ministry. We are all in our several vo- 
itions seeking to serve our Lord and 

Other conferences which have been 
gnificant, especially in the design, 
ere the ones on Ageing, the Panama 
ay Seminar, our special Communion 
id breakfast for State Legislators, 
id the Women's Spring Planning Day. 

We are indeed fortunate in our Dio- 
ise that there is some money avail- 

able to the Bishop to conduct special 
conferences for the clergy. During the 
past year or so, the clergy have been 
able to attend Refresher Courses con- 
ducted by seven of the most outstand- 
ing professors in the country. 

I mention all of these, Gentle- 
men, acknowledging that the Program 
Budget of the Diocese is a large one. 
However, the conferences and pro- 
grams this Diocese presents to the peo- 
ple are not included, as a general rule, 
in the budget itself. All of the con- 
ferences I have mentioned thus far 
amounted to over $10,000. You can 
see it would be impossible to assess 
the congregations of the Diocese for 
this amount of money. Our principle 
is that we should not have these kinds 
of conferences in the budget, but they 
should be offered to the people for 
the smallest amount of money pos- 
sible. As a matter of fact, the Church's 
Program Budget is mostly sal- 
aries, quotas and pensions. Only $15,- 
575 of the $534,650 is for programs 
and department work. Of this $15,- 
000, $6,000 is for College Work alone. 

Also, as you will hear from the 
Chairman of the Department of Fi- 
nance when he presents the proposed 
budget for 1966, your department 
chairmen & Diocesan staff have gone 
through it and taken from it over 
$9,000 which we felt could be re- 
moved or handled better outside of 
the budget. This is an honest attempt 
to make the budget as realistic as pos- 

When we talk about the budget at 
Convention, we think of the Episcopal 
Maintenance and Church's Program 
Budget. However, nearly every family 
in the Episcopal Church contributes to 
one or two other budgets that are 
also Diocesan budgets; namely: the 
Episcopal Churchwomen's ($52,252), 
the Episcopal Churchmen's ($1,500), 
the Episcopal Young Churchmen's 
($2,726). Besides these budgets, the 
Women of the Diocese gave $27,000 
to the United Thank Offering last year, 
the Men gave over $4,000 to the 
United Thank Offering, and the peo- 
ple of the Diocese, you, gave $9,815 
to the Presiding Bishop's Fund. You 
spent $26,000 to send your children 
and yourselves to Vade Mecum last 
summer. You put all of this together 
and you see that you gave $123,303. 
My friends, this is over and above your 
regular parochial budgets and all that 
you contributed to the Thompson Or- 

Mullen New 
President of 
Men s Group 

Thomas M. Mullen of Charlotte was 
named president of the Episcopal Lay- 
men of the Diocese of North Carolina 
at an annual meeting hosted by Christ 
Church in Raleigh during March. 

Mullen, an attorney, succeeds 
W. Skinner Pugh of Raleigh. Other 
new officers are: Jack Westervelt of 
Greensboro, first vice president; Wil- 
liam Joslin of Raleigh, second vice 
president; C. R. Vandervoort of South- 
ern Pines, secretary; Arthur Morris of 
Raleigh, treasurer; and E. T. Mulvey, 
Jr., of Winston-Salem, thank offering 

Named to the group's executive 
board were: Kerman Kopley, Greens- 
boro; R. E. Lee, Leaksville; Wilton 
Bethel, Wilson; Walter Alston, Jr., 
Henderson; Dr. Prezelle Robinson, 
Raleigh; Royal Shannonhouse, Rocky 
Mount; Richard Schneidle, Southern 
Pines; and Alex Ball, Asheboro. 

Kemp D. Battle of Rocky Mount 
and Emmett Bryan of Charlotte spoke 
during the one-day meeting. The Rt. 
Rev. Thomas A. Fraser, bishop of 
Diocese, conducted a morning com- 
munion service and delivered the ser- 

phanage, the Penick Home and other 
institutions and causes. 

Gentlemen, we must not boast nor 
swell with undue pride. But, we can 
be truly thankful for many of the 
things^vve have done in the name of 
our Lord. All of you give money. But 
more than money, on our eight de- 
partments and various other commit- 
tees and commissions that make up 
our Diocesan Program sit over 300 
lay people working hard for the Dio- 
cese. You are the very backbone of 
our efforts. You cannot be thanked 

On this, the 150th Convention of 
our Diocese, let us be extremely thank- 
ful and grateful for all we have been 
able to do in the past. And, let us 
pray that in the days of revolution 
and change that stand before us we 
shall strive courageously to be faithful 
servants and soldiers of Jesus Christ.

A Favorite Sermon 

Editor's Note: This is another installment of a new feature which appears 
from time to time. The purpose of this feature is to make available to the 
entire Diocesan Family significant messages from the clergy. Other install- 
ments in this series will appear in future issues. 

Rector, St. Stephen's, Durham 

When I attended Henderson High 
School the student body would gather 
from time to time in the auditorium. 
These were special times and the oc- 
casion was always one of expectation 
and interest. Sometimes we cheered our 
football team before their departure 
for a distant rival, sometimes we lis- 
tened to a learned gentleman talk about 
his particular interest, and sometimes 
school matters were discussed. The lat- 
ter times would start out interestingly 
but usually would become repetitious. 
At this point I would begin to look 
around to see where my girl was sit- 
ting or if my friends had any sly and 
mischievous things on their minds. My 
homeroom was not noted for its calm- 
ness or stability. 

One morning while school matters 
were being discussed I found myself 
at a good distance 
from my girl and 
my friends. Having JLb^*J. 
nothing better to do 
I gazed into the air 
and was immedi- Nb^^*^ 
ately struck by ' 
the thousands and HH 
thousands of dust 
particles floating in Mr - Davis 
the air and illuminated by the sun 
shining through the high windows. I 
began to wonder if these particles were 
really tiny earths, floating in the air 
in relationship to each other. Could 
there be tiny beings on these particles 
like people on the earth? Could the 
particular time of life be a few hours 
instead of billions of years? I looked 
and I wondered and I thought of the 
mystery and majesty of God's crea- 
tion. Suddenly everyone was getting 
up to go to class and my imagination 
returned to other subjects. 

This little story contains a deep 
truth. We first need to have a place 
in life if we are to be able to abandon 
it later in following Christ. My place 
was secure in my school among my 
friends and therefore I could abandon 
it in studying a tiny part of God's 
creation in wonder and awe. The fact 
that a man must have a place in life 


before he can abandon it is true of 
Jesus and all the saints. Jesus' place 
in life was secure. Born to Joseph and 
Mary, raised with the tradition and 
destiny of the Jews, taught to work 
with his father, loved in his home 
town, he was secure. When he was 30 
he abandoned this for a new life and 
a new destiny. He gave up all for the 
Kingdom of God. And what of St. 
Paul and St. Peter? Is not the same 
thing true of them? St. Paul was raised 
in a good Jewish home with two thou- 
sand years of tradition behind him, 
sent, to the best schools, and trained 
to be one of the best Pharisees. Only 
after he had a place to abandon was 
he asked to do so. St. Peter was se- 
cure in the fishing business and had 
his place in the sun before he left all 
to follow Christ. 

Now let us jump 1,500 years and 
look at two men usually not considered 
saints but I believe they are, for they 
abandoned their places in the sun 
and their security in order to search 
out the truth of God's Creation. They 
are Galileo and Charles Darwin. 

Galileo lived from 1564 until 1642, 
just 400 year ago. He was born and 
raised in Florence where his father 
was a competent mathematician and 
an able musician. He was a part of 
the Church which gave him 1,500 
years of tradition and backing. The 
very air he breathed contained a sta- 
bility produced by an accepted and 
stated faith and world outlook. He 
had many talents. His place was se- 

His father wanted him to study 
medicine but this was not to be. One 
day Galileo was in the cathedral and 
he observed that whatever the range 
of a swinging lamp's oscillations, they 
are invariably executed in equal times. 
He tested this and found it to be true. 
He had started on the road of mathe- 
matics and science and he was to stay 
on this road until he died. His father 
reluctantly agreed to Galileo's decision 
and backed him in his education. 

Soon Galileo was faced with a tre- 
mendous decision. Would he stick with 
the world outlook of his time as ex- 
plained in holy scripture, or would he 

adopt the radical Copernican Theory? I 
Would he hold to the belief that the R 
earth is the center of the universe and j 
around it revolves all, or would he ad- j 
vance Copernicus' belief that the j 
earth revolves around the sun? Would 
he give up his secure place in order 
to follow the truth? Would he follow 
the road of a saint or would he hold 
on to what he had? I do not think we 
can imagine the hold which the Bibli- 
cal world view had on the people of 
that time. Nearly everyone believed 
with all his heart that the Biblical 
world view was true, that it was given 
to man by God through revelation, 
and that any denial of this was a 
denial of the Bible, the Church, and 
Christ Himself. Whole systems of 
thought were built upon the Biblical i 
world outlook and these were taught 
in colleges and universities throughout 
all Christendom. , 

Galileo made his choice. He chose 
the Copernican view but he refrained 
from saying so or writing about it be- t 
cause he was afraid of ridicule. Even 
after the choice he was still influenced j 
by the predominant view of the world. 
A happy invention soon opened up 1 
more evidence to confirm Copernicus' 
theory. Galileo acquired a telescope j ii 
and soon improved it to the point that j t 
his telescopes were in demand all over : 
Europe. Next he observed the moun- j I 
tainous appearance of the moon, the : \ 
lesser stars of the Milky Way which j k 
looked like a mist to the naked eye, t ( 
and Jupiter's satellites. Slowly but sure- i | 
ly he began to write about the Coper- i | 
nican theory and tried his best to find (j, 
scriptural confirmation for this theory. ] 0 
The Inquisition warned him to avoid | g 
theology and stamped the Copernican \ g 
theory as heretical. Galileo promised 1 {s 
the Pope, Paul V, not to hold, teach I d e 
or defend the condemned doctrine. 0 [ 

But the truth was not to be denied j Id 
and seven years later Galileo, believ- 1 Bi 
ing a more liberal spirit prevailed in 
Rome, returned to his work on the ; \ 
Copernican theory. He finished and j , c 
published his book. Within the year he i < n 
was cited to Rome by the Inquisition. ,. 0 
Galileo recanted but what he had writ- j| 
ten and published could not be stopped ^ 
He had opened a door which could jj, 
not be closed. It is interesting to note | f 
that not all those in the Church be- It 
lieved what he said to be heretical, sail 
Immediately after his trial by the In- k 
quisition he visited a trusted friend, an uj 
archbishop, for seven months. Eight kt 
years later he died. 

The Churchman ^ 

I Two hundred and forty years later, 
in 1809, Charles Darwin was born in 
England. He lived until 1882. He died 
two years after my father was born, 
that's how close he is to us. Charles 
Darwin has a fine, secure place. He 
came from an outstanding family, he 
lived in a self-confident country, se- 
cure in a tight little island, and with 
an extraordinary church and cultural 
tradition. He also had many talents. 
His father sent him to Edinburgh to 
prepare for the medical profession but 
his nature made him unfit for this. 
Next his father sent him to Christ's 
College, Cambridge, to study for the 
priesthood. He took his degree but did 
not enter the ministry. During his 
studies he had found his calling 
through the friendship of older 
scientific men. 

He was fortunate in being asked to 
serve as naturalist on a surveying 
expedition. It was here he became fas- 
cinated with the observation that cer- 
tain creatures within a species are re- 
lated but not the same. He also was 
much impressed by "the manner in 
which closely allied animals replace 
one another in proceeding southwards" 
in South America. He began to think 
in terms of evolution, in terms of crea- 
tures evolving out of other creatures 
by mutation and national selection, of 
the kinship of all creation. Now this 
was not. an accepted theory or belief. 
Again, it is almost impossible for us 
to understand the thoughts and be- 
liefs of that time. Again the Biblical 
view was accepted as given by revela- 
tion and a denial of this world out- 
look constituted a denial of Christ and 
God. Was not the world created by 
God in six days? Did not God create 
each species separately and in an or- 
derly manner? Had not the creation 
of the world been determined as some 
4000 years before Christ by using the 

Darwin had to make a decision. 
Would he remain in his security or 
would he abandon it in search for the 
truth? Would he follow the saints or 
would he hang on to what he had? 
The world was ready, the time was 
ripe for a great naturalist. Would Dar- 
win be the one? Yes, Darwin was to be 
the one for he chose to abandon what 
he had in search of the Truth. He 
said, "I have steadily endeavored to 
keep my mind free so as to give up 
any hypothesis, however much be- 
loved, as soon as facts are shown to 
be opposed to it." Twenty-three years 

and much hard work passed before he 
published his great work, "On the 
Origin of Species." The rest of his life 
was spent in exploring and enlarging 
his theory of evolution. In 1882 he 
died and was buried in Westminster 

Today you and I live in a world 
partly created by Galileo and Dar- 
win. The galaxies and evolution are a 
part of the air we breathe. There is 
an excitement in the discovery of the 
immense space and time of God's crea- 
tion. We have a new understanding 
of the continual creation of God. 

The other day my daughter came 
home from school and told me she was 
to write an essay on what would have 
happened had Columbus discovered 
America 100 years later than he did. 
I immediately said the question had 
no answer for it was not a true ques- 
tion. Out of my evolutionary back- 
ground I could see the proper time for 
Columbus and any other time would 
have been out of kilter. There was a 
time in which men believed that a 
man could be placed in any age and 
he would have done the same things 
that he did during his life. Today we 
know better. 

The remarkable thing is that the 
new thought is much closer to the basic 
Biblical understanding of God and man 
than the old way of thinking. I dare 
say we have a much more profound 
understanding of the fact that Jesus 
came in the fullness of time than our 
forefathers did. I dare say we have a 
much more profound understanding of 
the image of God in man — when we 
stop to think that if you compress the 
age of the earth (just the earth) into 
a two hour span, then man would 
take up only IVi seconds. All of that 
time to produce us. All of those mil- 
lions and millions of years to bring 
about a creature made in the image 
of God. 

The knowledge of God's immense 
creative ability in all aspects of life is 
awe-inspiring and exhilarating. When 
we contemplate one galaxie, our own 
Milky Way, we are overcome with 
God's creativity! Remember that our 
Milky Way galaxie is one of a trillion 
galaxies, or possibly a trillion trillion 
galaxies. There are perhaps 100,000 x 
10° stars in our galaxie. The diame- 
ter of our galaxie is about 200,000 
light years and it takes three million 
years for our galaxie to complete a 
single revolution! Our solar system 
compared to our galaxie is no bigger

This is the knowledge that God has 
shared with us for we have been nur- 
tured and evolved to a point where 
we can contemplate the truly Al- 
mighty and All Powerful God! 

And what of the future. Will not 
God quicken man's self-consciousness 
and sensitivity even more? Will He 
not spread knowledge of his Resur-

kind? Will He not lift mankind over 
the millenias into the Resurrected Life

And will He not finally bring us into 
the perfection of His Kingdom? Will 
He not perfect us to the point that 
fear and despair and death are abol-

I believe He will!

Ministry To Those 'Far and Near: 

Churchwomen Set '66 Meeting 
For April 19-20 At Salisbury 

Churchman Editorial Board 

An exciting new concept in program 
planning will be presented to the Epis- 
copal Churchwomen at their annual 
meeting April 19-20 at St. Luke's 
Church in Salisbury. The program is 
designed to show the churchwomen 
their ministry to people "far and near," 
and to explain who these people are 
in the Diocese, the State, the Nation, 
and the world. 

The ministry to the people in the 
Diocese will be presented during the 
Tuesday morning session with a panel 
discussion on diocesan institutions. The 
discussion will emphasize how dioce- 
san-supported schools, conference cen- 
ters, and church homes for young and 
old are ministering to the people in 
their specific fields. 

The Tuesday afternoon session will 
give the picture of ecumenicity in wom- 
en's work. During this session the 
women will hear from Mrs. Elizabeth 
McCubben, who will tell of her minis- 
try as a churchwoman and superin- 
tendent of the North Carolina Cor- 
rectional Center for Women. The Rev. 
Charles L. Herron, migrant project 
director for the North Carolina Coun- 
cil of Churches, also speaks. 

Throughout these Tuesday sessions 
the Diocesan Episcopal Churchwomen

staff will relate the work of the Epis- 
copal Churchwomen with these vari- 
ous opportunities for service. 

On Tuesday night, following a fel- 
lowship dinner, there will be a service 
of choral evensong with Bishop Thom- 
as A. Fraser bringing his message to 
the annual meeting at this time. 

An innovation in the second day 
schedule is the celebration of Holy 
Communion at the opening of the 
Wednesday session at 9:00 a.m. This 
change has been made to enable "com- 
muting delegates" to participate in this 
service, which will be a choral service 
with Bp. Fraser the celebrant. Also at 
this time there will be the presentation 
of the NTO and the installation of new

Throughout these two days the Epis- 
copal Churchwomen should come to a 
better recognition of how God is work-

Church of the Month 

Patronize Our Advertizers 

Christ Church, Rocky Mount 

Christ Church, a diocesan mission 
with about 125 communicants, serves 
the eastern part of Rocky Mount. Be- 
gun 10 years ago under the sponsorship 
the Church of the Good Shep- 
herd, the congregation began worship- 
ping in a frame house loaned by Nor- 
man Chambliss on the old fairgrounds. 

A permanent building was con- 
structed on Fairview Road in 1957 
with a parish hall and classroom wing. 
An addition to provide more classroom 
space was added in 1960. 
Christ Church has had three min- 
| sters in its ten years: The Rev. John 
W. S. Davis, from 1955 to 1959; the 
Rev. William C. Spong, from 1959 to 
the end of 1962; and the Rev. Sidney 
Holt, from July 1, 1963 to the present. 
From an original 79 communicants at 
the end of 1955 the membership has 
(ji *rown to a present total of 130 com- 
|j a nunicants, 210 baptized members. 
A special challenge facing Christ 
Church has been ministering to a 
lighly transient area. The section of 
the city in which the church is located 
one in which many people have 
ented homes, to later move to other 
ireas or other towns. As a result, in 
ts ten years of existence, almost 300 
:ommunicants have been on the rolls 
)f Christ Church, with less than half 
hat number still remaining. 
A neighborhood institution, over 
{ffialf of whose members can walk from 
heir homes, Christ Church provides a 

darch 1966 

meeting place at present for no less 
than four girl scout troops while the 
spacious grounds on which it is lo- 
cated provide an excellent field for 
football and baseball games. The 
church program for young people in- 
cludes an active group of Young 
Churchmen, a Junior Choir with its 
own organist-director drawn from the 
EYC ranks, and a group of acolytes 
that includes every high school boy in 
the congregation. The church school, 
with 10 teachers, has enrolled 80 
young people and an adult class aver- 
aging 15 in attendance. Adult partici- 
pation at Christ Church includes nine 
licensed layreaders who take part in 
services on a regular scheduled basis, 
a senior choir of 10 members, a 36- 
member altar guild and a 60-member 
Episcopal Churchwomen's group di- 
vided into two chapters. 

Christ Church is a "mission with a 
mission" : To minister to a growing and 
transient area, especially those who 
come and go rapidly. It seeks to pro- 
vide a church home and Christian nur- 
ture the children and an opportunity 
to serve for parents.

The Province's 15 dioceses in 9 
Southern states will be meeting for the 
second time under the new depart- 
mental structure which evoked wide 
approval in 1965. Its deputies — di- 
ocesan department chairmen, corre- 
sponding Churchwomen's department 

chairmen, and one additional lay or 
clerical diocesan representative of each 
department — will be offered an ex- 
panded six hours of workshop time

In addition to its bishops and those 
persons with departmental responsi- 
bilities, each diocese will send to Syn- 
od as deputies the presidents of its 
Churchmen and Church women. These 
people will gather as a General Di- 

vision of the Laity to consider their f 
common tasks. T. Fitzhugh Wilson of \

The Bishops Letter: 

Fear Of Change The Real Cause Of 
Restlessness In The Church Today 

My Fellow Churchemen: 

There is a restlessness in the Church, which many people attribute to diametri- 
cally opposite causes and with equal conviction. 

First, the Church has failed, and continues to fail, to provide leadership in 
the decision making areas of social and political problems. Secondly, the Church 
has been too involved with demonstrations and political lobbying when it should 
have given its time to challenging people with Christ on an individual basis so 
that these persons could go out into life to transform society. 

It may well be that the real cause for this restlessness is the fear of change. We 
all know there is no greater fear than fear itself. In the world of things spiritually, 
the fear of change creates a timid and frightened person who is unable to re- 
examine his formal beliefs, his religious convictions and his basic commitments 

Our Lord taught us to seek the truth and then promised that the truth would 
make us free. It is only in the service of Christ that one has any hope of freedom, 
and when one is truly in Christ, there is no fear. 

Faithfully yours, 
Thomas A. Fraser

Dioceses New Area Visitation Plan 
Giving Bishop More Time With Parish 

Laymen of Diocese Hold Meeting 

George Margeson, Arthur Morris, Skinner Pugh 

Dwight Moody, William Holloman, Jack Westervelt 

The first four months of 1966 have 
brought into being a full scale opera- 
tion of the new area visitation plan. 
The purpose of the new plan is to en- 
able Bishop Thomas A. Fraser to spend 
nore time with parishes and missions 
. . . through the grouping of visits in a 
»iven area into a single interval of 

Prior to the beginning of the new 
visitation program, the bishop of the 
Diocese lost considerable time because 
jf undue back-and-forth travel across 
:he 39 counties between Charlotte and 
Tarboro. Under the new plan, Bishop 
eraser is able to spend an entire week 
jr more in a given area . . . with just 
)ne trip. 

Under the new arrangement, the 
leans of the five convocations within 
the Diocese are responsible for Bishop 
Fraser's schedule. All clergy within the 
Diocese are being requested to coordi- 
nate their visitation needs through their 
respective convocation deans. 

The Committee on the Bishop's Ad- 
dress functioning in connection with 
the recent diocesan convention at 
Charlotte had this to say about the 
present visitation system: 

"We call upon the parishes and the 
missions, the laity and the clergy, to 
work together in exploring the long- 
range advantages of this approach. . . . 
We urge that every churchman weigh 
seriously the contributions that area 
/isitations can make to the ability of 
the Bishop to serve as an active and 
personal Father in God, rather than 
kimply coming to us for a hasty con- 

Continuing, the committee's report 
says: "We urge that the Bishop, the 
leans, the Diocesan Council and the 
Diocese as a whole give careful thought 
o an experiment with strengthening 
he role of the convocation. We note 
jarticularly the possibility that the con- 
'ocations can play a constructive role 
n helping their parishes and missions 
lecide how stronger parochial organi- 
:ations can be treated in areas of de- 
fining population." 

Figures on 1965 confirmations indi- 
:ate the nature of the problem which 
he area visitation plan seeks to solve. 
Records show that 1,487 persons were 

Here are three scenes from the recent 
meeting of the Episcopal Laymen of

1966 gathering was held at Christ 
Church in Raleigh. At right, William B.

at the host parish, extends the official 
welcome. Thomas M. Mullen of Char-

confirmed last year in a total of 143 
services . . . these confirmations being 
limited to only 97 of the 125 congre- 
gations in the Diocese. 

The matter of bringing a coadjutor 
or suffragan into the picture has been 
explored. The clergy of the Diocese 
have urged that these posts remain 
open for the first full year of Bishop 

Fraser's term of service. 

The 1966 schedule is designed to 
bring Bishop Fraser into each of the 
convocations one to three times. The 
year's schedule began in the South- 
west Convocation on Saturday, Febru- 
ary 26, with Bishop Fraser meeting 
with clergy and their wives in the 
Salisbury area. The following day in- 

rfay 1966 


eluded communion services, sermons, 
an address to young people and a 
meeting with vestrymen . . . these con- 
tacts being made with St. Philip's, St. 
Paul's and with Christ Church, the lat- 
ter being in nearby Cleveland. On 
Monday, February 28, Bishop Fraser 
was in Concord to speak to the church- 
women at All Saints; to attend a vestry 
dinner and to preach at an evening 
prayer service. 

From Tuesday, March 1 through 
Tuesday, March 8, the Bishop visited 
parishes and missions at Salisbury, 
Kannapolis, Rowan County, Moores- 
ville, Statesville, Cooleemee, Fork, Al- 
bemarle and in Iredell County. Morn- 
ing, afternoon and evening events were 
included in the schedule for nearly 
each of these eight days. Confirmation, 
Holy Communion and Evening Prayer 
services were involved in these visits 
. . . along with sermons, meetings with 
vestries, plus talks to men's clubs, 
churchwomen, congregational lun- 
cheons and congregational suppers. 
Thus, in a 12-day trip Bishop Fraser 
was able to devote an uninterrupted 
period of time to approximately 15 dif- 
ferent congregations in Southwest Con- 
vocation area. 

Following a one-night confirmation 
in the Sandhills Convocation on March 
27, Bishop Fraser began a seven-day 
visit to the Central Convocation with 
a schedule that took him to Raleigh, 
Cary, Louisburg and Kittrell. Confir- 
mation services were held at St. Am- 
brose, St. Augustine, St. Michael's, St. 
Paul's, St. James', St. Timothy's, 
Christ Church and at Good Shepherd. 
The schedule also included meetings 
with laymen and congregations. Com- 
munion services and sermons were also 
involved in some instances. 

Beginning April 24 and continuing 
through May 1, the Bishop is to be in 
the Southwest Convocation for an 
eight-day visit with congregations in 
the Charlotte area. The schedule is to 
take him into the following churches: 
St. Martin's; Chapel of Hope; St. 
John's; St. Peter's; St. Martin's; St. 
Michael's; All Angels'; St. Andrew's; 
Holy Comforter; St. John's; and Christ 
Church. Again the schedule calls for a 
number of confirmation services . . . 
plus meetings with clergymen, men's 
groups, young people and vestries. 

Bishop Fraser is due to visit the 
Northwest Convocation May 15-22 
and the Northeast Convocation May 
29- June 5. The day-by-day schedules 
are now being completed.

'Sorry To Hear Your God's Dead' 

My dear Bereaved Professor of Christianity: 

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the recent loss of your God. What 
a shock to hear that He is dead! Of course, I understand He had been seri- 
ously ailing for quite some time . . . but that never really prepares one for 
the end when it comes, does it? 

I don't mean to pry, and certainly don't intend this as a morbid discus- 
sion . . . but what exactly do you think caused His death? One hears so 
many rumors. Some gentlemen said the other day that they were certain 
it was brought about by strain . . . this business of trying to be three persons 
at once, you know! Others say it came about by over work of another 
sort. ... He simply couldn't answer all the prayers without getting tangled 
up in Human cross-purposes, and was fast losing His reputation as God 
of Righteousness to so many diverse Righteous groups! It will not surprise 
you, I'm sure, to learn that some people simply feel He has lost his useful- 
ness and could no longer serve them as they wished to be served ... so 
they are relieved to be done with their false worship. They say it made 
them feel like hypocrites! 

Is it true that some of you intend to keep one of the three parts of God 
as a moral reminder? I'm speaking of Jesus, the man. I expect he'll be put 
properly along side other great moralists and teachers now that he's divested 
of Divinity. How much easier it will be to evaluate His words and actions! 
One can even criticize with impunity now. Of course it does make a good 
part of His action career seem a bit mad ... by our present knowledge of 
behavior ... but one must accept these adjustments as a part of our growth! 

Speaking of growth, what direction do you suppose you'll take, now that 
you're free to serve yourself . . . and Mankind? It must seem a real challenge 
to assume new responsibilities of your own determination, and to reap per- 
sonally whatever success you may have, instead of giving credit to some 
Higher Power! It has taken Man a long time to realize his true place in the

. . . New Assignment 

New Bulletin — Christ Church, Cleve- 
land, is newly added to our list of 

Earth's scheme, but now he can use his power unhindered and to his own 
end. (one likes to think). 

By the way, what provision have you made for those persistant "hangers- 
on" who refuse to believe their God is dead? It was the same kind of 
tenacious trouble makers that started most of this business 2000 years ago! 
Only that time it was the Son of God they wouldn't believe was dead! I hope 
they don't give you as much difficulty this time. Probably they won't . . . 
even they are so divided among themselves that they are willing to kill each 
other off in defense of their interpretation of their God. Doesn't it embarrass 
you to see them all doing it under the banner of Love? . . . Oh well . . . what 
we must suffer and overlook for the good of mankind! 

I'm afraid I've rambled and departed from my original intent. Again . . . 
deep sympathy. Be assured that Time will heal. I personally remember other 
"difficult" days . . . the Big Flood . . . Babylon's destruction . . . Nineveh 
. . . Jericho . . . , but so much for ancient history! We must dry our tears 
and move forward! 

Here's something you might think about — It seems a shame to let a per- 
fectly good organization go to waste! How about you and some of your co- 
workers coming to play on my "team"? You'll find we can accommodate 
my policies to your pattern of maneuvers without too many changes. Just 
a matter of switching images. Oh yes, you'll need some new idols ... let 
me handle that for you! I've got just what you'll want . . . besides the ones 
some of you are already using. We can increase the number as the need 
arises. I'll bring out some old ones . . . change the exterior a little, and they'll 
have every bit the attraction they used to have. Sounds exciting, doesn't 
it! . . . but we musn't let this new freedom make us careless. I've waited 
much too long and worked much too hard to take a chance now! 

You'll be hearing from me again. Meanwhile, see how many of your 
group you can get to help out. 

Impatiently yours, 

An "OLD" acquaintance of the deceased 

P.S. Keep that bunch of "die-hard" Christians involved with their own 
words . . . and not the word of their God. I don't want anyone invoking 
any Powers that might conflict with mine . . . besides, it's not SCIENTIFIC!.

During 1965 the clergy of Winston- 
Salem stepped into a new dimension of 
life. They developed and carried out 
a series of experimental projects aimed 
at a better understanding and ap- 
preciation of the life and work of the 
lay people of their parishes. The 
projects were five in number: (1) Work- 
Worship Project; (2) Christianity- 
Commerce Conversation; (3) Wash- 
ington Leadership Seminar; (4) MRI 
Relationship with Priest in Hyde Coun- 
ty; and (5) IBM Training Project. 

The first project had as its chief 
aim to improve the worker's under- 
standing of the meaning of work and to 
improve his understanding of the 
Eucharist. This project was carried on 
with the Episcopal employees of the 
R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company and 
consisted of 1 1 discussion sessions over 
a period of 12 months. The result of 
this project has been a realization by 
the clergy of a definite need for the 
clergy to understand work better. They 
learned how romantic their under- 
standing of work and the business 
world is. 

The purposes of the Christianity- 
Commerce Conversation were: (1) to 
do something together as clergy; (2) 
to show the clergy's interest in and 
ignorance of their parishioners work; 
and (3) to begin a discussion between 
laymen and clergy about work. This 
evening was built around a case study 
for business men and clergy and the 
event was gratifying to the participants. 
Most of the hopes of stimulating dis- 
cussion and indicating to the laymen 
the clergy's interest in his work were 
realized. As a result of this project 
several clergymen have received invi- 
tations to visit industrial plants and a 
marked difference has been noted in 
several pastoral relationships. 

The Washington Seminar was in- 
stituted to give the leadership of the 
four Winston-Salem churches an op- 
portunity to see how the leadership of 
churches in another city faces such 
problems as urban redevelopment, 
changing neighborhoods, and suburbia, 
(and incidentally to have a good time). 
The six clergy and fifteen laymen who 
went to Washington feel the excite- 
ment of seeing the church alive has

Rector, St. Luke's, Salisbury 

A gadfly is an insect that completely 
devotes its life to pestering livestock. 
"It sucks blood," says the Encyclo- 
paedia Britannica, "and its bite is most 
painful." Thus, we sometimes refer to 
a person who is purposely annoying, 
who ceaselessly presents pointed, biting 
criticism and thereby irritates many 
people, as a "gadfly"; for he figura- 
tively at any rate, "sucks blood and 
his bite is most painful." 

The leading gadfly in the American 
Episcopal Church today, if not in the 
entire American 
Church today, is 
the Bishop of Cali- 
fornia, the Rt. Rev. 
James A. Pike. I 
am sure that our 
hearts grieve with 
him in the tragic 
death of his son. 
We pray that the 
Bishop may be comforted in the Pres- 
ence and Power and Love of our Lord. 
In view of his personal loss, it no doubt 
would be in better taste not to discuss 
Bishop Pike's role in the Church just 
now. Yet the current issue of Look 
Magazine devotes its lead article to the 
Bishop — apparently with his full con- 
sent; and what Bishop Pike is quoted 
as saying leaves many churchmen 
stunned. It would be unfair, I think, 
not to respond at this time. For the 
plain fact is that today we have a new 
"Pike's Peak." The question before us 
is: Is "Pike's Peak" going to enable, 
us to climb to new and more glorious 
views of God? Or is it a stumbling- 
block in the Way of Faith? 

do not think we can adequately 
answer the question just now; all the 
facts simply are not in. But there are 
three considerations that are essential 
background for us as we deal with 
the question in the days ahead. 

The first consideration is this. We 
are living in new and changing times 
that are leading fast and furiously to a 
life which is really and legally secular 

in spirit. Some people have likened the 
latter half of the 20th century to the 
latter half of the first century, when 
the Church first began its missionary 
outreach. Like that earlier time, it is 
said, the Church cannot go out on the 
assumption that it is going to win ready 
acceptance of the Good News. Indeed, 
much open hostility abounds. Chris- 
tians must be ready to suffer and to 
die once more. For my part, I see 
American and world culture today as 
thoroughly secular; but at the same 
time I do not feel that it is usually 
hostile to the Church — disdainful, 
yes; but hostile, no. People are hostile 
only to what they fear. The Church is 
not seen by many today as any great 
threat to their secular lives. The 
Church is quaint and old-fashioned, 
like a Victorian house with too much 
gingerbread — but hardly a threat. So 
the prevailing attitude is not so much 
hostility as disinterest. People simply 
couldn't care less. They've heard the 
record before and they are bored with 

This, I think, is the prevailing tem- 
per of the secular world today — dis- 
interest; and we are all to some degree 
affected by it. If we could get into 
buses and drive around Salisbury right 
now, we could all see this attitude and 
know we are not talking just of New 
York City or San Francisco. And it is 
not just the attitude of those outside 
the Church this morning. It is also the 
attitude of those inside who, never- 
theless, say, "The Church is doing its 
business only when it sticks to spiritual 
matters," meaning, things that don't 
really count. So, the first considera- 
tion in looking at the questions as- 
sociated with Bishop Pike is the fact 
of the spiritual disinterest of our time. 
It is the awareness of this disinterest 
that has pricked many Church leaders, 
including Bishop Pike. He, like many 
others, is seeking new ways to arouse 
the interest and concern of people who 
don't want to bother with the Gospel. 

The second consideration is our own 
understanding of what the role of a 
bishop in the American Church should 
be. (I say "American" Church because 

I believe the role of a British bishop 
may be to some degree different.) Far 
more than the "president of the cor- 
poration," a top administrator, we look 
upon a bishop as a chief father in God. 
Traditionally bishops have been called 
"Defenders of the Faith," those who 
uphold the truth of the Gospel, the 
final Pinnacle of defense against all 
invaders, a mighty and impenetrable 
fortress of faith. 

It comes as a shock, therefore, to 
behold so broadly displayed in Bishop 
Pike the basic humanity of a bishop, 
his fumbling, his doubting, his uncer- 
tainty. Yet, we should not be shocked 
to learn that holy orders, even epis- 
copal orders, do not do away with a 
clergyman's humanity. A bishop has 
the same right to struggle with his soul 
as any other Christian. In fact, it is an 
ossified bishop who does not so Strug- 

But is it proper for a bishop to make 
such a public display of this struggle? 
Does he really "defend the faith" in 
this gadfly role? I must confess this is 
where I have difficulty. I welcome a 
few gadflies in the Church. They keep 
us itching and active — and that is 
good. But I'm not sure that a gadfly 
should accept episcopal orders. It 
seems to me that these are two differ- 
ent and irreconcilable ministries. I 

Canvass Workshops Set 

Two training workshops for 
1966 Every Member Canvass 
chairmen have been announced by 
Bishop Thomas A. Fraser. The 
dates are May 20 and 24. 

The May 20 session is sched- 
uled at Saint Mary's Church in 
High Point for parishes and mis- 
sions in the western half of the 

The May 24 workshop will be 
held at Saint Michael's Church in 
Raleigh for the eastern half of the 

Both sessions will begin at 7 
p.m. and will last for approxi- 
mately two hours. 

The workshops will be con- 
ducted by Bishop Fraser, assisted 
by Ben F. Park who heads the 
Diocese's Department of Promo- 
tion and Communication. 

Clergy throughout the Diocese 
have been urged to report the 
names of their 1966 canvass chair- 
men to Bishop Fraser and to en- 
courage their presence at one of 
the two training gatherings. 

May 1966 


could accept Bishop Pike's wanderings 
and wonderings far more readily if he 
were writing and speaking as a con- 
cerned priestly scholar than I can as a 
bishop, a father in God. Perhaps I am 
old-fashioned and conservative in this 
area (which must come as a surprise 
to some of you that I should be conser- 
vative in any area). I recognize that 
for every item of publicity the bishop's 
public relations officer releases, there 
are today 196 bishops in the Ameri- 
can Church releasing none, but work- 
ing steadily to strengthen the faithful 
and to proclaim the Good News of 
Jesus Christ in the most effective ways 
they can devise. But the role of a 
bishop should be dynamic and we must 
be willing to take another serious look 
at it. The proper role of a bishop to- 
day, then, is our second consideration. 

The third consideration in facing 
"Pike's Peak" is that we be very care- 
ful to understand what it is the Bishop 
is saying. "I've jettisoned the Trinity, 
the Virgin Birth, and the Incarnation," 
he is quoted as saying in Look. A new 
book to be published next month by 
the Bishop dealing with the identity of 
Christ may reveal he has jettisoned 

At face value this looks heretical. 
But perhaps he is not saying what we 
hear him saying. We all have to be 
careful to recall that our belief is in 
God, not in theological statements — 
doctrines like the Trinity, the Virgin 
Birth, and the Incarnation. Faith in 
God comes first. Theological state- 
ments are devised to describe and to 
protect this faith — set boundaries — 
so as to protect the faith from being 
diluted, on the one hand, or expanded 
beyond truth, on the other. If the 
Bishop has renounced only the tradi- 
tional ways of saying things and not 
the truth of God behind them; if he is 
coming up with contemporary ways of 
expressing eternal truth that will deep- 
en the convictions of the faithful and 
confront dynamically the secularist of 
our time; then we can perhaps ap- 
preciate, even thank him for new in- 
sights into the beauty and wonder of 
God. But to date, in my opinion, he 
has not achieved this. I will go along 
with casting aside old forms when ade- 
quate and significant new ones are 
presented; but to cast aside the old 
without presenting the new is to create 
the kind of vacuum our Lord was care- 
ful to warn us about, one into which 
an evil as well as a divine spirit can

The Clergy Conference to be

will devote a large portion of its 
schedule to a consideration of the 
practice and theology of confirma- 

A spokesman for the Roman 
Catholic Church, the Rt. Rev. 
Msgr. George E. Lynch of Ashe- 
ville, will speak on his church's 
practice of confirmation. Dr. 
Joseph Glass, professor of religion 
at Lenoir-Rhyne College in Hick- 
ory, will represent a Lutheran 
point of view on the theology and 
practice of confirmation.

Commission to make a report to 
the 1966 Clergy Conference, and

A gadfly is a troublesome insect. 
Perhaps God has brought it into His 
world for a purpose. At the moment I 
suggest we look objectively, not emo- 
tionally, at "Pike's Peak." In good 
time, God will show us whether we 
are to scale it for a new view or cast 
it aside as a stumbling block to the 
faith of the world. But whatever the 
result, the exercise of confronting God 
and ourselves in such depth will be to 
our benefit. Swat the fly, if you like; 
but don't knock it out — yet! 

Let us pray. 

Grant, O Lord Jesus Christ, that 
thy Church may never settle down to 
mere contentment with the tradition of 
the past nor be moved by every pass- 
ing wind. Grant that it may be alive 
to all new movements of thy Spirit in 
the hearts and minds of men and faith- 
ful in preserving all goodly heritage. 
May it stand always for the removal 
of injustice and error and the vindica- 
tion of righteousness and truth; Who 
liveth and reigneth with the Father 
and Holy Ghost ever, one God, world 
without end. Amen.

December five went from Winston- 
Salem to Hyde County for a goose 
hunt and an evening of discussion. A 
similar trip for " fishing is planned for 
this spring. The aim of this is an effort 
to incorporate leisure time into the 
ministry of the clergy involved, as a 
need was felt to learn to use leisure 
as a ministry. The aims of fun for 
the clergy and fellowship with a wider

to sensitize clergy to the needs of lay-

management concepts which IBM 
teaches its customers, to find out what 
industry says to its own, and to be 
better able to speak the language of 
the business world with their parish- 
ioners in that world. The Rev. Dudley 
Colhoun was invited by IBM to attend 
their Executive Seminar in Endicott, 
the first clergyman ever to attend such 
a session. The beginnings of this project 
have been most satisfying and the 
Winston-Salem clergy are encouraged

Churchwomen Hold Planning Days 

Clergy Attend Presidents Workshop Mrs. Sterling Stoudemire Presides 

Spring Planning Days were held in each of the Diocese's five convoca- 
tions during the latter half of March with good attendance and active par- 
ticipation on the part of the Episcopal Churchwomen. 

The leadership training sessions seek to aid Churchwomen in planning 
for worship, study, action and outreach on the parish level. 

Hosting the five sessions were Calvary Church at Tarboro, St. Stephen's 
Church at Oxford, St. Timothy's Church at Winston-Salem, Christ Church 
at Charlotte and The Terraces at Southern Pines.

Overnight Camping, Fishing, Boating 
Attractions At Vade Mecum This Year 


Assistant Director of Program 
Diocese of North Carolina 

Early this spring, I drove from Ra- 
leigh to Camp Vade Mecum to spend 
a day with T. B. Bowman, the resident 
manager and director of Childrens' 
Camps. As I approached the little white 
gatehouse on my left, I was astonished 
to find three bright red newly painted 
two-horse wagon chassis. With obvious 
excitement, I asked Mr. Bowman about 
the wagon chassis, and he, with just as 
obvious an enthusiasm, began to tell me 
about his plans for the summer pro- 
gram at Vade Mecum. 

Mr. Bowman was building beds on 
the wagon chassis. He told me he 

planned to have three covered wagons 
in a train which they would use for 
overnight trips to a campsite just off 
the Vade Mecum property. Each 
camper would have at least one oppor- 
tunity to camp out overnight in this 
wagon train. He told me of a new 
campsite in the wilderness, west of 
Cheshire Hall, in the direction of "the 
haunted house," quite beyond the 
present wilderness campsite. He plans 
for each camper to have at least three 
overnight camping trips. 

I learned next of 20 new sets of 
archery equipment, including targets, 
bows, and a full quiver of arrows for 
each set. The objective in the purchase 
of this equipment is to make it possible 
for all campers to participate in archery 
practice. Mr. Bowman also pointed out 

a new archery range on the ball field 
area of the camp. 

Next I learned of Mr. Bowman's 
plan to develop a greater emphasis on 
softball, especially through the use of 
competitive play-offs by cabin units. 
He will have developed, by the be- 
ginning of the camping season, five 
horseshoe pits. He has acquired new 
volley balls and basket balls. Track 
will remain a favorite athletic ac-j 

Mr. Bowman had begun to think 
about new hiking trails to Moore's 
Nob, the Cascade Falls, Window Falls, 
and a new quartz mine which he has 
just this year discovered. He pointed 
out that he was planning, weather per- 
mitting, to replace the traditional ban- 
quet at the Junior Boys' and Junior 
Girls' Camps with a special picnic lo- 
cated near the end of one or another 
of his projected hiking trails. 

He told me he was going to get I 
some cane poles and lots of redworms 
and take the children fishing in Wolf 
Creek. I asked him what kind of fish 
he could catch there. He replied "Cat- 
fish, hog fish and knotty head fish."; 
He said that for the Senior Boys' Camp, 
he planned at least one overnight boat- 
ing trip down the Dan River in flat t 
bottomed boats, which he was about | 
to build. For the Senior Girls he wasj 
planning a special opportunity to makei I 
blackberry jam and jelly, and he noted j I 
that blackberry picking would be avail- 
able to all the camps underway whenj 
the blackberries were ready. From myj 
past experience, I knew that black- j 
berry pies and pancakes would make 
very good eating. 

As of this writing, Mr. Bowman an- 
nounced the following members of his I 
permanent staff: Miss Susanne Mc- «f 
Millin, John Maddocks, Miss Rachel 
Kirkpatrick, Bill Jones, Miss Ann Kin- 
dell, Ray Spooner, Dwight Cardwell, 
Miss Elizabeth Bird, and Mrs. Bobbi tii 
Everhart, registered nurse. He re- 
gretted that his former dietician of 3 
many years' service, Mrs. Sally How- &n 
erton, will not be back this summer lit!

Over 250 young people and their

Churchmen of the Diocese of North 

Saint Michael's Church was host for 
the gathering and the Rev. James D.

was the theme of the convention. A 
dramatic reading of the play "Cup Of 
Trembling" by Elizabeth Berryhill pro- 
vided the basis for small group discus- 
sions. The play is based on the life of

Here Is Text Of Commission s 
Report On Worship And Music 

Editor's Note: Following is the 
report of the Diocese's Commis- 
sion on Worship and Church Mu- 
sic as presented to the recent 1966 
diocesan convention at Charlotte. 

The Commission has noted with 
keen interest the concern with worship 
as action and as total involvement in 
life expressed in last year's Report on 
the State of the Church to this Con- 
vention. We have begun the study re- 
quested by the Committee on that Re- 
port. Such a study, in fact, appears to 
us to be an on-going concern of this 
Commission. The very fact that a com- 
mittee not charged with any special 
concern for worship should neverthe- 
less devote a great portion of its re- 
port to the subject indicates happily 
that the dialogue has already begun. 
We consider it our task to stimulate 
its continuation in whatever ways may 

If worship is seen as action which 
does not stop at the altar but extends 
into the world, it strikes us that there 
should be direct involvement between 
this Commission and the various De- 
partments of the Diocesan Council, 
who are specifically charged with de- 
veloping and carrying on such action 
in the name of this Convention. The 
nature and mechanics of such involve- 
ment need further study by all parties. 

We also feel that we must help to 
guard against the notion that persistent 
lifelessness in worship can be dealt 
with effectively by mere liturgical mod- 
ernization. Lifeless worship usually in-

dicates lifeless people. Vitality will be 
generated only at a deep, personal 
level. The institution of an "offertory 
procession" at the Eucharist, for in- 
stance, by no means guarantees that 
everyone present will henceforth have 
a broad sense of the offering of him- 
self and the world to God. That form 
can become just as mechanical as any 
we have inherited from 1549. 

It seems to us, therefore, that litur- 
gical renewal today must have its real 
center in theology rather than in cere- 
monial. It is as we come to recognize 
God as Lord of lords and Jesus Christ 
as our Savior that the impetus to wor- 
ship will be given. Thus, the whole 
educational process within the Church 
is crucial to meaningful worship. The 
development of a sound devotional life 
is critical. Common prayer will have 
little significance for those unfamiliar 
with private prayer. 

At the same time, this is not simply 
an either/or matter. Vital corporate 
worship can inspire the spiritual life of 
the individual just as his own spiritual 
strength can contribute vitality to cor 
porate worship. The clergy and others 
charged primarily with the conduct off for 
the services should ever be mindful 
that (in the words of last year's Report 
on the State of the Church) "the pri 
mary thing which the Church does is 
worship." The Prayer Book can be — § 
and often is — used as a crutch to help 
unprepared people limp along in the 
doing of their duty; or it can be the 
foundation for proclaiming and experi 
encing the joyful love of Christ our 
Savior. Our worship deserves our very 
best, which means at least a careful 
and informed preparation of all that 
is to be offered to God and a continu 
ing study of how we might serve Him 
more faithfully. The Commission wel 
comes assistance from all who will help 
in this study.

Laymen's Meeting Scheduled 
June 17-19 At Vade Mecum 

. . . Was Prisoner of Japanese 

The annual Laymen's Conference of 
the Diocese of North Carolina, will be 
held at Vade Mecum on June 17-19. 

"Two of the objectives of the lay- 
men are to deepen the spiritual life of 
the men of the church and extend the 
impact of Christianity in our time," ac- 
cording to W. Skinner Pugh, outgoing 
president of the Episcopal Laymen As- 
sociation of the Diocese who has ar- 
ranged the conference program. "In 
keeping with these two objectives, we 
feel that we are most fortunate in se- 
curing a wonderful leader in Dr. Ernest 
Gordon, dean to the Chapel and of the 
School of Religion at Princeton Uni- 

Dr. Gordon, a native of Greenock, 
Scotland, was educated in his native 
country and in the United States where 
he now holds citizenship. He served in 
World War II as a company com- 
mander of the Argyll and Sutherland 

Highlanders. He was a prisoner of war 
with the Japanese for four years. Dr. 
Gordon, dean of the Chapel at Prince- 
ton since 1955, is the author of three 
books: A Living Faith for Today; 
Through the Valley of the Kwai; and 
Miracle on the River Kwai. 

"I am sure after you have read the 
above sketch on Dr. Gordon, you will 
see that here is a man who has truly 
had the opportunity to witness for our 
Lord in many fields and situations. I 
firmly believe that Dr. Gordon will be 
one of the outstanding leaders of our 
long Vade Mecum conference history. 
In this confused world of ours, where 
all sorts of questions are being asked, 
here is a refreshing personality who 
can answer our most serious questions 
from a great depth of experience," 
Pugh said. 

The conference will begin with sup- 
per at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, June 17 
and end with lunch on Sunday, June 
19. "We will have brochures in the 
mail shortly and we urge you to get 
your registration in early. Lets all plan 
to bring a carload of men to Vade 
Mecum! I am sure you will find it 
worth the effort," Pugh concluded.

Interested In A Panama Vacation? 

Chairman, Dept. Overseas Missions 

A two-week tour of Panama this 
summer? Me? 

Have you asked yourself these ques- 
tions? Numbers of North Carolina 
Episcopalians are asking just those 
questions — and answering them af- 
firmatively! This July Bishop and Mrs. 
Thomas A. Fraser will lead a group 
from North Carolina to this interest- 
ing, scenic, and historic Central Ameri- 
can republic. In many ways this can 
be a new look in vacations as Chris- 
tians of North Carolina and Panama 
have a new and deep opportunity to 
get to know one another on a person- 
to-person basis. 

The real purpose of the trip is to 
encourage just such person-to-person 
contact while on a vacation-like trip 
to this exotic land at the crossroads of 
the world. North Carolina hopes to 
gain real insight into the people, the 
land, and the church in Panama, and 
at the same time to establish ties of 
friendship and love that will endure 
in the years ahead. North Carolinians 
will also have several opportunities to 
try to communicate what life is like in 
North Carolina. 

The organizer and coordinator of the

$37,000 from the Diocese of North Carolina. The balance of the $55,000 cost chapl; 
came from the United Thank Offering of the women of the Episcopal Church 8islio| 
under the Mutual Responsibility and Interdependence program. Located adjacent other 
to the university campus, the center includes a chapel, large meeting room, study & the 
rooms, library, kitchen and dormitory space for four student aides. The picture public

Sea Saints Perform 

The St. Mary's Junior College 
Sea Saints present annually a pro- 
duction of stunts and skills in the 
form of a water pageant. The Sea 
Saints are girls who are selected 
From swimming try-outs at the De- 
fining of the school year. The girls 
began work on this year's ballet 
last fall and presented the finished 
product to the student body sev- 
eral weeks ago. The theme that 
they chose was "Holiday USA." 

The president for this year is 
Betsy Dameron, a member of St. 
John's Church at Marion who was 
the soloist in several numbers. 
Colorful costumes with musical 
and lighting effects emphasized 
the traditions associated with such 
holidays as St. Patrick's Day, 
Thanksgiving, Halloween and 

its to Panama, Bishop and Mrs. 
iser have come to know the people 

I country in some depth. Two weeks 
der such leaders will be fun as 

II as interesting. In Panama the de- 
ls of the trip are being supervised 
i coordinated by Bishop R. Heber 
ioden and the Rev. Anselmo Carral, 
iplain to the University of Panama, 
ihop Gooden is planning among 
ier things to introduce the members 
the tour to the president of the re- 
blic and other national leaders. 
Bryan, in describing the itinerary, 
tes that the members of the tour 
1 have ample opportunity to visit 
: historic cities of Panama and 
Ion, among the most ancient cities 
the New World, as well as to see 
: "new" Panama and the famous 
nal. The tour will offer the oppor- 
lity — unique in North Carolina's 
ationship with Panama — to go by 
s up the Pan-American highway 

through the breathtaking beauty of the 
republic to David. From David side- 
trips have been planned to visit out- 
lying districts, some of which can be 
reached only by air. On the way home 
from David, the group will have a 
day at the diocesan conference center 
at Santa Clara, with its lovely Pacific 
Ocean beaches. 

It is the hope of the diocesan De- 
partment of Overseas Mission, which 
is sponsoring this first overseas tour, 
that people and parishes of the 
Diocese will get much better first-hand 
knowledge of and involvement with 
the overseas mission of the Church. 
Persons from North Carolina parishes 
could by this means investigate com- 
panion parish relationships with Pana- 
manian parishes or missions. Parish 
vestries in some instances are electing 
persons as official representatives on 
the tour, and in some cases are as- 
sisting with the financing. 

Parishes and organizations who con- 
tributed so generously to the Student 
Center at the University of Panama 
can take this opportunity to go to see

offerings bought a jeep for the arch- 
deacon can use this opportunity to see 
the jeep in action. Those who have 
helped the Bella Vista Children's Home 
can go to meet the children there. 
Women can go to see St. Paul's, Pana- 
ma, where $150,000 of their United 
Thank Offering will be invested soon. 

All this and a bishop, too! 

Has your parish chosen a represen-

□ I want to go. I enclose $100 per person as a deposit. Save spaces 

for me. 

□ I want to send someone else to Panama. Tell me how I may send a

People Must Share God-Given Resources' 

Editor's Note: The following address was delivered 
by Bishop Thomas A. Fraser on the occasion of the 
dedication of the Episcopal Center in Panama on 
January 16, 1966. 

"At the meeting of the Council of the Diocese of 
North Carolina this past Tuesday, a resolution was 
passed requesting me to extend to the Diocese of 
Panama congratulations on the completion of the 
Episcopal Center and affectionate greetings in the 
Name of our Lord. 

"The building is magnificent. It far surpasses our 
fondest dreams. Its design is beautiful. Its economi- 
cal and functional use of space are splendid illustra- 
tions of man's talent and stewardship. 

"This building is a symbol of Mutual Responsi- 
bility and Interdependence in the Body of Christ. 
When the archbishops and metropolitans of the 
Anglican Communion were led by God in the com- 
position of this great document, it was this kind of 
co-operative spirit and vision that they had in mind. 
God was calling them to do new things in new ways. 

ty 1966 


This Episcopal Center is something new made pos- 
sible in a new way. Churchmen in North Carolina 
have been given the privilege to share with their 
Christian brothers in Panama in the construction of 
the first student center in all of Latin America. May 
I quickly add that a student center is a center to 
which all students are invited to pursue that glorious 
study of the Truth as God makes the Truth known 
through the various and many disciplines of knowl- 
edge. Our Church Fathers are aware that the Church, 
like the world, must break with the old, rigid ways 
of doing things if it is to meet the challenge of a 
changing world. The old ways are not good enough 
or we would not be lost in the confusion of the pres- 
ent day where false prophets offer us manmade blue- 
prints for the future that only sap our strength and 
our hope and leave people lost in helpless fear. Only 
God can lead us through this changing world and as 
we all work and study with a sense of mutual re- 
sponsibility and interdependence, can we break 
through to a new world, where courage will replace 
fear and hope will replace anxiety, and we can pro- 
duce results that will be beneficial to all mankind. 
May God bless this symbol of this new spirit of the 
Anglican Communion which teaches us not to fear 
change but to walk courageously and to be obedient 
to Christ. 

"As chairman of the Board of Trustees of one 
college, a member of the board of two other col- 
leges, and responsible for the college work at 35 
colleges in my own Diocese, I am aware that the 

members of the university communities of the world 
possess the people and the power to move the coun- 
tries of this earth out of the orbit of fear and poverty 
and war into the way of courage, dignity, prosperity 
and peace. But in order to do this the students and 
faculties of our universities must have a strong com- 
mitment to a faith in themselves, in mankind, and 
in God. Intellectual achievement, in itself, is not 
enough. A university education that is not com- 
mitted and put to work is nothing more than a mu- 
seum piece. We must study and we must achieve 
with a goal in mind, and that goal must be one for 
the benefit of all mankind in a world that can easily 
explode by population or bomb or by fear. 

"The philosophers down through the ages have 
taught us that to knowledge we must add faith in 
God, and to this I believe that we must add hard 
work, not just for our own self-glorification but to 
improve our communities, cities, states, nations and 
the world. No man can any longer live unto himself 
or the death bell with toll for all of us. The people 
who live on this tiny planet called earth must share 
the resources that God has given to us, and that we 
will continue to discover through study and hard 
work, in order that we may live in peace and good- 
will, in health and prosperity. 

"My dear friends of this university, students and 
faculty, the form that this changing world takes in 
Panama is in your hands. Be strong and of good 
courage and may God bless you!"

Editor's Note: The following is 
based on a recent informal talk by 
Bishop Thomas A. Fraser to a 
group of teen-agers at Charlotte. 
The occasion was a gathering of 
more than 200 youths for an 
American Folk Song Mass at St. 
John's Episcopal Church. Bishop 
Fraser's talk was taped. A tran- 
scription was made available to 
this publication by the Rev. 
Martin R. Tilson, St. John's 

There is an interesting Biblical 
phrase for this day and age. It says, 
"Give us grace that, being not like 
children carried away with every blast 
of vain doctrine, we may be estab- 
lished in the truth of Thy Holy 
Gospel." We have lots of people say- 
ing lots of things. I will try to speak 
briefly to two. There are those who 
say God is dead. There are those who, 
in the newspaper today, say there 
should be a bubble gum machine on 
every corner filled with birth control 

First, nobody can prove that God 
exists. Nobody. The Church has never 
attempted to prove that God exists. 
Nobody can prove that God does not 
exist, but the burden of proof always 
rests with the affirmative. There are 
lots of things in this world you can 
never prove. You cannot prove that 
you love one another. There's no pos- 
sible way of proving love. Try it. You 
buy her flowers, you give her gifts, 
you spend all your money. What does 
it prove? You've been taken. Some- 
one says I will give my life for you, 
and he goes out and jumps in front 
of a truck. She stands on the sidewalk 
and says, "He has a martyr complex." 

You can't prove faith. If you want 
to put faith in real basic English, it's a 
calculated risk. That's exactly what it 
is. There was an atheist that was taken 
through a monastary by a monk. They 
went all through the monastary. He 
showed him the cells in which the 
monks lived. He took him to the chapel 
and through the garden, and finally the 
atheist turned to the monk and he 
said, "You're a fool to waste your life 

this way." The monk turned around 
and said, "Well, I'm just betting you're 
wrong." And that's about it. 

Faith is a calculated risk on which 
you bet your life that what you be- 
lieve is true. You don't do this because 
you just have rocks in your head. You 
do this because there are reasons. 
Sometime, take the back off a watch 
and look at it. Watch the many nun 
dreds of parts in that watch. The per 
son who replaces one worn out part 
must be a master, to know just how, 
when and where. If you ever have the 
opportunity to stand on a mountain- 
top when the sun finally gets ready to 
go down at night, and you stand there 
and you see where sky meets earth 
just decide whether this is an accident 
Try to take the back off a watch and 
take out a part and put it back by 
chance. It will not work. 

But take an illustration just a little 
bit closer. Someday go to the emer- 
gency room where one of your friends 
has cracked up in a car and just will 
not make it. You stand there and 
watch the human body function. Watch 
the nurses and everyone gather round 
to grasp the last bit of life and try to 
save it. And then you stand there in 
this dead silence while everybody uses 
all the brains and all the technology 
that everyone has to save the life of a 
very sweet, lovely person whom you 
love. And then you will know that God 
is present. Or you can go to the nether- 
most parts of the world, where man can 
neither read nor write, and he stands 
in awe of that which is greater than 
himself, to which he attributes life. Or 
go to an observatory, and have it ex- 
plained to you how this earth is lesf 
in size than a grain of sand in a rock 
quarry, that there are thousands of 
galaxies, and then ask this man, How? 
And he will probably refer you to Mr. 
Darwin. You know, Charles Darwin 
who at the end of his Origin of Species 
says, "This is the greatest reason for a 
belief in God." 

But I'll take it one step further .

line, and didn't back off. One whom 
you've been told about in a lot of 
your youth work, was Dietrich Bon-

CLERGY CONFERENCE SPEAKERS— Spokesmen from the Roman Catholic and Lutheran churches will join clergy 
of this Diocese for the 1966 Clergy Conference scheduled at Vade Mecum June 19-21. With an underlying theme of 
ecumenical inquiry, the conference will examine confirmation practices in three different faiths. Last summer Bishop 
Fraser named a Confirmation Study Commission to look into confirmation practice in this Diocese. The commission's 
findings and addresses by two guest speakers will be special features of the conference program. Monsignor George E. 
Lynch (left), pastor of St. Lawrence Church at Asheville, will speak on confirmation in the Roman Catholic Church. 
Joseph D. Glass (center), assistant professor of religion at Lenoir Rhyne College, will discuss Lutheran confirmation. The 
Rev. James D. Beckwick (right), rector of St. Michael's Episcopal Church at Raleigh, will present the findings of the Dio- 
cese's Confirmation Study Commission. 

hoffer. He fought every possible op- 
pression of Nazism. He fought Nazism 
from the word go. He knew when he 
left New York City, where he had 
been offered a large salary to be a 
youth worker in America, he was going 
to die. And he went to England and 
he stood there and opposed Hitler . . . 
and they said please come back and 
direct the church. And he went back 
and was put in jail. I wish you would 
read how he stood in jail while the 
bombs fell all around him, and the 
building parts fell about him. Then 
they came on April 8, 1945, and he 
knew he was going to have a noose 
around his neck. He said: "This is the 
beginning of my life." 

There are those that say we should 
be free sexually. If you've ever been 
at the O'Hare Airport in Chicago, they 
stack them up at 32,000 to 34,000 
feet. They come down in a spiral pat- 
tern and every pilot knows he must 
stick by the rules. Without the rules, 
they would drop like dead birds. You

I Another thing. Sex is good. God 
■gave it to every human being. There 
is nothing wrong with it. This is part 
Ipf what attracts us to each other. This 
■is what we spend our whole lifetime 

learning. Getting married and having 
sexual relations in the back of an auto- 
mobile are not the same thing, because 
sex involves a great deal more than 
physical satisfaction. There is no 
sexual satisfaction between people 
where there is not an emotional and 
spiritual understanding. Just because 
some gal is passionate about you 
doesn't mean she loves you, or be- 
cause some guy is passionate about 
you doesn't mean he likes you. He 
means, I want to use you for my satis- 
faction. It takes a long time to learn 
to stick with someone. This isn't easy. 
This is a good thing, but you see it's 
a good thing by the rules. Apart from 
the rules, it's murder. 

I don't mean that anybody who 
violates the rules is ready for the way 
out yonder, that isn't what I mean to 
say. I am not saying that teen-age 
marriages won't work. All I am saying 
is that sexual relations outside of mar- 
riage are not only against the rules 
. . . but the practice just doesn't work 

Don't raise your hands, but if any 
of you do not feel wanted ... if you've 
ever felt not wanted . . . then are you 
really mean enough to do this to some- 
body else? Within the framework of 
marriage . . . where two people really 
learn to like one another as well as 
being passionate in their love, where 
they are communicating their whole 

being one to another, where they are 
speaking to one another about things 
that are a lot deeper than physical at- 
traction, and where a child is born . . . 
then we have shared with God in the 
only way you can get people on this 
planet. And it's wonderful and mag- 
nificent, and everybody rejoices. And 
this is what it's supposed to be. 

I would like to have a dollar for 
every girl who has come to me and 
said, "You know, I just got married."

There is outside of a large city a man 
who has an office upstairs over a shop-

school in the area passes the word. 
One hundred and seventy-five dollars, 
a shot of penicillin and a hatpin and 
you don't ever worry. You'll never 
have that baby. Steady traffic. And 
then they're fighting kidney ailments 
and all the other things the rest of 
their lives. 

It isn't a matter of being forgiven. 
God forgave us worse things than this 
before we ever did them. The im- 
portant thing is that you've got to live 
with yourself. Male or female you must 
discipline yourself and defend a thing 
that is terrific. To have that child, to 
share with God in creation, to be able 
to rejoice and give thanks, to be able 
to walk with your head up high and 
say, "Gosh, how wonderful!" (End)

Churchman Editorial Board 

Welcome — Again Dioscene would 
like to say thank you to the churches 
who send us their bulletins, from 
whence cometh all our news, and par- 
ticularly to say a welcome to the new 
ones that have joined us this month. 
Grace Church, Weldon, notes that 
their Brant Smith has received an EYC 
honor (see EYC Convention Story), 
and that they have received a new fair 
linen altar cloth as a memorial. Church 
of the Saviour, Jackson, reports on 
plans for an afternoon service of Bless- 
ing of the Fields on Rogation Sunday, 
May 15. The Rev. Robert M. Bird is 
rector of both churches. Christ Church, 
Rocky Mount, the Rev. Sidney S. 
Holt, priest-in-charge, also has EYC 
news with their Debbie Slone elected 
to a diocesan office. St. Mark's, Meck- 
lenburg County, the Rev. William R. 
Dennis, Jr., rector, tells in their at- 
tractive newsletter of an open house at 
the new rectory (new telephone in 
Charlotte 399-5982 and new address 
is Box 194 A- 1, Route 1, Huntersville); 
and has an interesting report on a 
weekly "Night at the Rectory," where 
on Monday evenings the members of 
the parish are invited to meet and dis- 
cuss whatever subjects they so desire. 
"The St. Andrew's Encourager," from 
Charlotte, has put us back on its mail- 
ing list. Included in their news is a 
list of "What Do Churchwomen do, 
Anyway?" This is to be concluded in 
the next issue — but looks like from 
this beginning list they should be too 
tired to care! The Rev. David Wood- 
ruff is rector. 

EYC Convention — Commenting on 
the EYC Convention at St. Michael's, 
Raleigh, in April, we'd like to quote 
from the bulletin of St. Timothy's, Wil- 
son. "Feedback indicates that those 
who attended had a most enjoyable 
and meaningful week-end." See page 
7 for picture story and names of new 
officers. Other news to be noted from 
that week-end are the winners of the 
Bishop's Award Contest. They were 
Miss Cathy Carney, St. Michael's, Ra- 
leigh, first in the Artistic Division. 
And in the Literary Division, Miss 
Ever all Aiken was first; Miss Jill 
Leonard, Grace Church, Lexington, 
second. Cash prizes went to all three. 

EYC Notes — Other notes of interest 
on EYC programs and doings include 
another from Grace Church, Lexing- 
ton, on a talk and slides by the Rev. 
Jack Crum of the North Carolina 
Council of Churches entitled "The 
Churches Confront Communism." 
They invited all the young people of 
Lexington to attend. A future program 
is planned on Christian Economics. 
St. Andrew's, Greensboro, reports a 
joint trip with other Episcopal youth 
groups of the city to WFMY-TV for a 
showing of the CBS Special Report, 
"Are You Running With Me, Jesus?"

Palm Crosses — Going back to Palm 
Sunday we note from St. John's, Char- 
lotte that some of their palm crosses 
were sent to them from St. George's 
Parish, Antigua, by the Rev. Canon 
Richard Canning who visited them last 
summer. They were made from the 
palm trees there by members of his 
parish. Another Palm Sunday custom 
noted was the service of the Blessing 
of Palm and Solemn Procession at Holy 
Innocents, Henderson. It was noted 
that this custom of such a procession 
of palms came from the Eucharistic 
liturgy of the fourth century Church 
in Jerusalem.

DOWNTOWN MINISTRY BEGINS— The Episcopal churches of Winston-Salem have begun a downtown ministry in 
the Twin City ... the project presumably being among the first of its kind in the Nation. Bishop Fraser has termed the 
undertaking an example of "the church extending its ministry out to where the people are." The project will be centered 
in an office on the twelfth floor of the Wachovia Building and will be open from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Monday through 
Friday. The purpose is to provide opportunities for conversation about business, the professions and the Christian faith; to 
render counseling service to troubled persons as a supplement to other communities resources; to provide a religion- 
oriented referral service for physician, attorneys, court workers and others; and to make referral to appropriate agencies 
for those with special needs. The staff which will maintain the office will consist of the Episcopal rectors in Winston- 
Salem as well as the Episcopal, Methodist and Baptist chaplains at Wake Forest College. Specially chosen lay people 
from local churchers also will be on the staff of the Downtown Ministry Center. The receptionist will be Mrs. Betty Bow- 
man. In addition to the staff there will be a 24-hour telephone answering service. At a recent orientation session, entitled 
"A Refresher Course in Community Resources," the speakers included Dr. Jack M. Rogers, psychiatrist and assistant in 
clinical psychiatry at Bowman Gray School of Medicine, who spoke on "Early Recognition of Mental Illness." The Rev. 
Roderick L. Reinecke, rector of St. Timothy's Episcopal Church, was in charge of the training session. In the above 
photo Mr. Reinecke and Dr. Rogers discuss the project with (from left) Mrs. Melville Prongay, Mrs. W. V. Vreeland and

He is a graduate of the University of 
the South and of Virginia Theological 
Seminary. Dr. Brown spent five years 
in China during the 1920's before serv- 
ing as rector of Emmanuel Church in

winter of 1955, St. John's today has 



more than 600 communicants. Its com- 
bined building and operating budgets 
total in excess of $90,000. The present 
physical plant represents an investment 
of over $400,000. 

The names of 43 persons appeared 
on the petition for a 1955 charter 
from the Diocese of North Carolina. 
The late Bishop Edwin A. Penick con- 
ducted the first service at St. John's 
on January 2, 1956 with 52 communi- 
cants taking part in a communion ser- 
vice at the County Day School Build- 
ing on Sardis Road. For a time services 
were then conducted by lay readers 
and Charlotte clergy. Mr. Tilson be- 
came priest-in-charge in October of 

In June of 1958 an expansion pro- 
gram was launched with H. E. Coffin, 
Sr. serving as chairman. A $60,000 
goal was set to finance the initial struc- 
ture. A total of $78,000 was pledged 
by 72 families over a three-year 
period. Godfrey S. Lett was chairman 
of the building committee.

Charlotte Church 
Gefs $40,000 Loan 

A loan of $40,000 for St. Christo- 
pher's Church in Charlotte has been 
authorized by the directors of the Epis- 
copal Church Foundation in New 
York, according to Bishop Fraser. 

The loan will help make possible 
construction of a new church for this 
rapidly growing parish. The estimated 
total cost of the project is $60,500. 

The Revolving Loan Fund was es- 
tablished by the Episcopal Church 
Foundation soon after it was founded 
in 1949. It provides for loans over a 
ten-year period with annual repay- 
ments of one tenth and a minimum 
service charge of 1 per cent of the 
unpaid balance. As money is paid back 

into the fund it is available for loans in 
other areas. The Revolving Loan Fund 
has grown to more than $1,350,000. 
Since it was established, over $2,800,- 
000 has been made available for more 
than 155 church buildings in almost 
every state. 

Bishop Fraser stated that among 
the programs carried on by the Epis- 
copal Church Foundation are the 
Study of Theological Education under 
the chairmanship of Nathan M. Pusey, 
president of Harvard University and a 
director of the Foundation. A program 
of annual graduate fellowship awards 
to advanced theological students plus 
numerous research and special projects 
for the benefit of the whole church 
are also among foundation activities. 

The main office of the Foundation 
is in New York and a midwest office 
is maintained in Chicago.

God Is Dead 
Subject Of 
Parish Verse 

Two Raleigh Episcopalians took 
pen in hand recently to speak through 
verse to the "God Is Dead" contro- 

One piece of writing appeared in the 
weekly bulletin of the Church of the 
Good Shepherd under the heading 
"God Dead?" The following was writ- 
ten by Miss Irma Deaton of Good 

The Tribal God who chosen people led 
To savage victory o'er all their foes, 
Who succored only them, in all their 

And made them lords: — yea, such a 
God is dead! 

The Jealous God, whose jealousy was 

By bloody conquest, persecution's 

By Inquisition's terror, through an age 
Of fear and hate: — yea, such a God 
is dead! 

Sectarian God, whose narrow followers 

"Our way alone is right, all others 

Set brother against brother, prayer and 

Made mockery: — yea, such a God is 

But GOD, the All-Creator, in Whom lie 
All power, all good, all justice, truth 
and love, 

Who came as Jesus to draw men 
above : 

He lives eternal, and can never die! 

Miss Lillian Elizabeth Turner of 
Christ Church, Raleigh, wrote the fol- 
lowing verses appearing in the weekly 
parish bulletin and headed "If God 
Were Dead": 

If God were dead, 
How would the dawn know when to 


Its dazzling radiance on the screen 
Of Nature's most impressive scene? 
How would the birds know when to 

Or bursting trees know when it's 

If God were dead, 
And there was nothing left to dread, 

St. Lukes, Salisbury, Displays 
Special Cross During Lent 

. . . Unusual 

I During Lent in the churchyard of 
St. Luke's Church, Salisbury, there 
stood an unusual cross on which were 
hung a number of unusual objects. The 
concept of the cross came from Find- 
ings, our church's Christian Education 
magazine, reporting on such a cross on 
the lawn of St. Mary's Church, Day- 
tona Beach, Fla. At the base of the 
cross was a sign bearing the Biblical 
text, "Is it nothing to you, all you 
who pass by?" Quoting from the Find- 
ings article, "What helps to tell the 
story are a number of objects which 
with the cross itself symbolize the 

Would day stand still — would there be 

Would worlds in conflict cease to 

Would hearts stop beating, love grow 

Earth's beauty fade and youth grow 

If God is dead, 
Who listens when our prayers are said; 
Who sorrows when we go astray, 
Whose least command the winds obey? 
Who makes the mountains stand so 

And guides the lost sheep lest he fall? 

But God still lives, 
And to each child of His He gives 
That breath of life that only He 
So freely gives to you, to me, 
That we, in turn, the word may spread : 
"Our God still lives! HE IS NOT 

events of Jesus the Nazarene's last day 
on earth: the rope, a reminder of the 
legend that He was bound to the cross 
as He carried it through the streets of 
Jerusalem; a cock, a symbol of the 
three denials of His companion and 
apostle, Peter. The batiendo, or whip, 
symbolizes His scourging by the Ro- 
man soldiers, and the crown of thorns 
and the sign in Greek and Latin read- 
ing, 'This is Jesus Christ, King of the 
Jews,' are symbols of His mockery by 
the soldiers and people. The right arm 
of the cross bears a white cloak stained 
with red, reminiscent of the loin cloth 
Jesus wore when His clothes were 
stripped from Him. At the foot of the 
cross are a reed and sponge — re- 
minders of the answer He was given 
when He cried, 'I thirst'; a spear — 
there because it was with a spear that 
His side was pierced; and a pair of 
large dice — calling to mind the words 
from the Passion, 'And they cast lots 
for His garments.' More than anything 
else, the dice attract the attention of 
those passing by ... ! 'The cross is a 
visual aid,' Fr. Brumby says. 'In 
vivid, realistic, and sometimes a shock- 
ing way, it calls attention to the love 
of God for us as revealed in His Son, 
Jesus Christ.' We tend to forget, in oui 
twentieth-century American society, 
that without the Cross there would bi 
no Resurrection." 

Bishop Appointed To

sity and chairman of the Adviso: 

The Theological Education Stud; 
just launched is a major review of 
aspects of theological education and is 
focused on "the changing role of tha

society," according to Chairman Pusey

Hillsborough Historical Society 
Proposes Curtis Memorial Garden 

St. Matthew's Church 

The Hillsborough Historical Society 
has made plans for an old-fashioned 
garden in memory of the Rev. Moses 
Ashley Curtis D.D. (1808-1872). He 
was a native of Massachusetts and a 
graduate of Williams College. 

As a young man, he began his 
studies for the ministry. In 1830, he 
went to Wilmington, North Carolina, 
as tutor in the family of Governor 
Dudley. While there, he continued his 
studies for the ministry under the Rev. 
Robert Brent Drane D.D., rector of 
St. James's Church, and was ordained 
in 1835.

Wilmington, he collected more than a 
thousand specimens. His missionary 
work took him to Western North Caro-

TIME OUT FOR FUN — The recent Lay School of Theology was not an all-work-and-no-play affair by any means. 
Shown here enjoying a break from the more serious side of the Vade Mecum gathering are (from right) the Rev. Charles C.

a member of the resident staff of 
the Center for the Study of De- 
mocratic Institutions in Santa 
Barbara, California. Following is 
a statement from Bishop Hines: 

"Bishop Pike's letter of resig-

Lay Groups Consider 
Mutual Objectives 

Four main objectives were agreed 
to when the Joint Committee of the 
Brotherhood of St. Andrew, Church 
Army and the General Division of 
Laymen's Work held its first meeting 
in the Army's Brooklyn headquarters 

The committee will seek to main- 
tain communications among the mem- 
ber groups; to explore ways to be 
mutually helpful by coordinating pro- 
grams where feasible and seeking new 
ways to nurture the ministry of the 
laity; to work for sound financial status

Churchman Bible Quiz 

1. Can you name three of the four 
longest-lived men in the Bible? 

2. What was Pilate's first name? 
What was Peter's other name? 

The Eternal City 

John, the beloved disciple, in Revelations 21: 19-20, endeavors 
to express in human language the most transcendent spiritual 
beauty and permanence of the heavenly city — the everlasting city. 
He selected, singularly enough, to describe the foundations thereof, 
beautiful crystalline gems: Jasper, Sapphire, Chalcedony, Emerald, 
Sardonyx, Sardius, Chrysolyte, Beryl, Topaz, Chrysoprasus, Jacinth, 
Amethyst, every one of which appears in the minute crystals of 


"The Silk of the Trade' 

When the surface of this gran- 
ite, which is a composite of these 
actual precious stone crystals is 
highly polished, all the scintil- 
lating beauty and color of these 
jewels become visible. 

How peculiarly fitting that 
monuments to loved ones be 
erected of lasting granites, con- 
taining the very gems which the 
Apostle John mentioned in this 
metaphorical description of the 

foundations of the walls of the 
everlasting city, the city of our 
resurrection hope. 

Be sure that monuments you 
buy are cut from genuine 
Winnsboro Blue Granite. There 
are many granites which have 
a surface resemblance to Winns- 
boro Blue Granite, but they do 
not possess its durable qualities 
and lasting beauty.

The Churchmai 

Church of the Month 

Holy Innocents, Henderson 

Parish Historian 
Holy Innocents, Henderson 

The Church of the Holy Innocents 
jegan in 1841, the year that Hender- 
son received its charter, in the "dwell- 
ng house of William Eaton," which is 
till standing, where Granville County 
also began 95 years before. 

The church has had 16 rectors. Be- 
ginning in 1870 three of them served 
- total of 73 years. They were from 
♦ 1 to 52 years of age when they came 
to the parish. They were followed by 
three men, 26 to 31 years of age, 
who served a total of 11 years and 
ix months. 

The Rev. Isaac Wayne Hughes was 
n the former group. He was in the 
parish 34 years, a man of boundless 
good will who almost at once became 
the leader of the community and most 
pctive in interchurch affairs. In the lat- 
ter group was the Rev. John C. Mott 
who served the church less than four 
/ears. Both men had fruitful rector- 

ships. Mr. Mott filled the church to 
capacity for services and developed 
leaders for the parish mission at North 
Henderson, preparing it for admission 
as an organized mission of the Diocese 
in 1954. Col. Henry Perry, vestryman 
for 36 years, had nurtured St. John's 
Mission from its organization in 1908 
until his death in 1936. 

The Rev. Herbert Nash Tucker, Jr. 
resigned as rector in October 1965, 
and the Rev. Robert N. Davis came to 
the church March 1 3 as its seventeenth 
rector. No rector has equalled Mr. 
Tucker in getting the men of the church 
to work. Practically every man serves 
as usher, and 20 lay readers in groups 
of two assist at services and hold ser- 
vices twice a month the year around 
in Holy Trinity Church, Townsville, 
and in St. John's Church, Williams- 
boro, during July and August every 
year. For weeks while St. Timothy's 
Church, Clarksville, Virginia, had no 
rector, lay readers from this parish 
held regular services there. From Oc- 

tober to the coming of Mr. Davis, lay 
readers conducted services without in- 
terruption and received tremendous 
support from the congregation. 

The first church was built on 
Garnett Street in 1842 and had ten 
communicants at the beginning. Mem- 
bership was small until 1872 when the 
introduction of auction sales of tobacco 
quickened this area and the popula- 
tion of Henderson increased from 545 
in 1870 to 4,191 in 1890, bringing 
many new members to the church. 
Twelve or more of the men who came 
to the Church of the Holy Innocents 
then played no small part in shaping 

Several long tenures of office began 
at that time. David Y. Cooper was 
treasurer for 20 years and on the ves- 
try 32 years; Edward W. Ellis was a 
vestryman for 25 years; George C. 
Lamb served as superintendent of the 
Sunday school 27 years and as senior 
warden 34 years; and Allison C. Zol- 
licoffer was secretary 28 years and on 
the vestry 34 years. The Church of 
the Holy Innocents owes much to these 

Beginning in 1874 six or more fam- 
ilies of between 35 arid 40 people 
came to the church direct from Eng- 
land and many came from Canada 
where they had been members of the 
Church of England. 

The present church on Chestnut 
Street was built 1883-85. Bishop Ly- 
man said this about the church in 
1885; "In a large public hall in Hen- 
derson, I preached. . . . The new 
church reflects no little credit on the 
zealous rector to whose refined and 
correct taste it is due. ... It is a great 
step forward in illustrating the true 
ideal of a church edifice." The rector 
to whom the church "is due" was the 
Rev. Julian Edward Ingle who, in the 
words of a member of another church, 
"went among his people like an angel 
of the Lord." 

The church is rich in symbolism, 
which is to be found on every side, 
and a handsome memorial window 
fills every aperture. The first of these 
windows was described by a writer in 
The New York Churchman on De- 
cember 28, 1889 thus: "A handsome 
memorial window has just been placed 
in the chancel of the Church of the 
Holy Innocents, Henderson, N. C. It 
is similar in character to those in the 
chapel of the General Theological 
Seminary. The design, which has been 
admirably carried out, represents etc. 

tune 1966 


etc." This triple lancet and the transept 
windows, the north transept window 
depicting the Seven Sacraments of the 
Church, were made in London. The 
maker is unknown although extensive 
search has been made for his name, 
and continues. All the other windows, 
with the exception of two by Tiffany, 
were made by Mayer of Munich and 
New York. 

The Church of the Holy Innocents 
is the children's church, and not in 
name only. Most of the panels of the 
window above the altar depict the 
childhood of our Lord; the large west 
window, Christ with the Children, was 
given by the children of the Sunday 
school in memory of the lad John Rust 
Eaton in whose memory the church 
was named; one of the chancel win- 
dows is of the boy Christ in the temple; 
and another window is of the daughter 
of Jairus. 

Emphasis throughout the years has 
been on the children of the church. In 
1867 when membership was very 
small, the Rev. Joseph W. Murphy 
had 46 boys and girls in the Sunday 
School and left their names in the par- 
ish register. In the 1870s the Rev. 
William Shepard Pettigrew had in his 
splendid theological library some books 

for children, who would stretch out 
on the floor of his study and devour 
them. In 1895 the cadets of St. An- 
drew was formed in the parish for 
boys about the age of the lad John 
Rust Easton, the first organization in 
the church for its male members. Many 
years later, the Rev. Bruce William 
LeFebre taught that "the men and 
women of the congregation are as re- 
sponsible for the church's children as 
the parents themselves." 

A number of years ago a grade in 
one of the public schools studying 
Gothic architecture and the crusades 
asked for a guided tour of the church, 
and has asked for it every year since. 
The parish secretary conducts the tour, 
commenting on the windows, symbol- 
ism and appointments of the church. 

The Episcopal Young Churchmen 
holds a candle-light service during the 
Epiphany season for all young people 
of the town with their presidents par- 

Frequent comment is made on the 
twelve or more young women who 
were inspired and trained by Mr. Le- 
Febre in his rigorous teachers' training 
class and Bible class for young women. 
They have been leaders in the parish, 

and beyond its confines, ever since! 

The Church of the Holy Innocent! 
has never been segregated. Among the 
historic meetings that have been helc 
here: The Diocesan Convention anc 
Annual Meeting of the Auxiliary ii 
1916. The meeting of the Auxiliary ii 
1932, which was the golden jubile« 
meeting of the Auxiliary of the Diocese 

This parish has given many leaded 
to the Diocese beginning with John Sj 
Eaton in 1841, who from his confir- 
mation that year to his death in 1853 
was a deputy to all four General Conj 
ventions. Among others have beei 
Thaddeus A. Cheatham, priest; Besl 
sie B. Blacknall, missionary; Arthur L, 
Tyler; Catharine Miller Thomas; Marj 
Ann Cooper Broughton; Curlena God 
frey Herndon; Rose C. Flannagan 
John William Sutphin Davis, priest 
and Sarah Dawson Davis.

The Bishops Letter: 

No Place In The Church For 
Likes Of Klan, Black Power 

Friends of the Diocese: 

We have had another hot and tragic summer. War, riots, strikes and brutal 
murders have been the front page news when America was trying to have a re 
laxing and refreshing vacation. People were seeking peace when there was no 
peace. It has been a hard summer in which to relax 

These tragedies came as no surprise to those who have been sensitive to the 
dynamics that have seized a large portion of the people of the earth. We can only 
hope that the cooler weather of the fall season will make the congestion of over 
populated areas less unpleasant and give every American citizen and certain! 
very Christian citizen another opportunity to face the maladies that test the 
social planners of our nation and world. 

Nothing has been more disturbing than the extremist groups who have gnawed 
at both ends of the cancer of mankind's problems. They have used prejudice, 
fear, and injustice as a means to hinder and destroy many worthywhile and noble 
efforts to allevate the pains of a rapidly growing world that is having great dif- 
ficulty in meeting its challenges. It seems to me that anyone who uses the misery 
of human problems to aid and abet the unlawful practise of violence excommuni- 
cates himself from the Sacrament of the Altar and cannot call on the name of our: 
Lord Jesus except in repentence with a humble and contrite heart. 

Let it be clearly understood that there is no place in this church for the think- 
ing of the Klan or the philosophy of Black Power. In my opinion, the followe 
of either excommunicates himself from the Altar of God and can only return by 
an act of repentance and confession 

If there were ever a time in our history when all mankind needed love and 
balance and courage, it is in our day. There is no room for the emotional, irra- 
tional, and prejudiced extremist. God endowed man with reason to raise him 
above the animals of the earth. If we do not use this God given power we will 
be lower than the animals and create a civilization less tolerable than the jungle. 

A change of season will not solve our problems, but it may take some of the' 
irritation out of them temporarily. As we settle down to a more regular schedule^ ^ 
of activity may God grant us the courage and the wisdom to face honestly the 
problems of mankind with the willingness to work and sacrifice to achieve just be 
and honorable solutions. to 

Faithfully in Christ, ! to

Editor, The Churchman: 

Lord, can't you see it's vacation time; Most all the Episcopal Churches in 
Diocese have closed down their Church Schools. The clergymen and lay work 
are out of town and the Church School teachers have been replaced by summer 
volunteers. The working people who are not already away, are planning trips to 
cooler places, to the mountains and to the beaches. 

Why then do we have to be bothered with all these things the newspapers keep 
bringing to our attention. Mr. Meredith has been shot? Indeed, and what are 
we supposed to do. It's vacation time! Trouble in Watts? Who has time to be | itill 
bothered during vacation time? A child in the congregation is sick and some 
adult is in the hospital? Who is taking care of them? Are the doctors and nurses 
all away on vacation too? 

Have the people in Viet Nam taken time out for a rest? It's a shame the 
people there don't know when vacation time comes. Why don't the newspapers 
and television people go on vacation too? Maybe we could get some peace anc 
quiet if they would just get things quiet for the summer.

Bishop's Tour Of Panama Example Of 
People-To- People Ministry In Action 

Editor's Note: During July, Bishop Fraser led a special lay missionary group from this Diocese to Panama, 
companion to the Diocese of North Carolina. The two dioceses have shared this companion relationship for 
five years. The following article and accompanying photographs are the work of Miss Angelyn C. Sills, an on- 
campus Episcopal student at North Carolina State University in Raleigh. Miss Sills is completing work on a Mas- 
ter's Degree in Microbiology. Those making the trip to Panama are pictured on the front cover and include the 
following: Bishop and Mrs. Fraser, Connie Fraser, Mrs. Henry Haywood and Miss Angelyn Sills, all of Ra- 
leigh; Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Cobb of Durham; Mr. and Mrs. W. E. Cole, Mr. and Mrs. John Fletcher and 
Mrs. John Elliott of Charlotte; Mr. and Mrs. Roger Gant, Jr., and the Rev. and Mrs. T. E. Bollinger of Bur- 
lington; Mr. and Mrs. Luther Lashmit and Mrs. Harry Barthwick of Winston-Salem; and Mrs. Emmett W. 
Bryan of Matthews.

The Bishop's Tour never got off the 
ground . . . till Miami that is. Due to 
the machinists union strike, the air- 
line with which we had reservations 
both to and from Miami had cancelled 
all flights. So last minute arrangements 
had to be made to get the 18 of us to 
Miami in time for our flight to Panama 
City. Luckily Seaboard added a Pull- 
man sleeper to the end of the train in 
Richmond (especially for our group) so 
we didn't have to sit up for the 1 6-hour 
train trip to Miami. 

An orientation had been planned 
for the night of July 13 at the Sir 
Walter Hotel in Raleigh where mem- 
bers of different congregations through- 
out the Diocese were to have gathered 
before departing to visit our companion 
diocese, the Diocese of Panama. The 
companion diocese relationship has 
been established for a period of five 
years. It is hoped that the two dioceses 
may enter into programs of mutual aid 
and cooperation based on mutual un- 
derstanding. Money from the churches 
in our diocese and from the Episcopal

Churchwomen has already contribute 
to the building of a university student 
center and a school. Our mission was to 
show the Panamanian Episcopalians 
that we are interested in them, rather 
than in merely sending down allott- 
ments of money for this, that or the 
other project. Specifically the members 
of our group had a chance to meet and 
talk with people to find out first hand 
what problems confront the different 

parishes and the diocesan programs on 
a larger scale. 

Not only was this trip valuable in 
church related matters, but we had 
many opportunities to see the contrast 
in the peoples of Panama, in the coun- 
try itself and to learn a bit more about 
the Canal Zone. The program was 
planned to include as much as possible, 
to cover the largest amount of land, and 
to be exposed to the maximum num- 
bers of peoples in the most varied 
situations. It sounds hectic! It was! 
This group of 18 strangers (19 after 
Connie Fraser arrived a few days late 
because of summer school final exams) 
survived varied escapades together, re- 
laxed among themselves and talked 
freely together. The friendships which 
developed on this trip are one of the 
most valuable items we brought back 
with us. 

But this is jumping the gun a bit! 
The group is still in the Miami train 
station where we adjusted our sights to 
palm trees rather than loblolly pines. 
Bishop Fraser herded us into limosines 
bound for the Miami airport with a 
phrase we heard often on the trip, 
"Move 'em up! Move 'em out!" when- 
ever we were lagging behind schedule 
(always). We were waiting for him to 
get in the limosine when he stepped 
back, laughed and said, "See you all in 
a few weeks. I think I'll go to Ireland!" 

Ours was an easy flight (save a few 
bounces and shakes over Cuba, due to 
the weather). The aircraft was a brand 
spanking new Braniff jet, on its maiden 
voyage. It was Alice Haywood's maiden 
voyage in a plane, too. The group 
bought her a small Braniff travel bag 
full of silly gifts to help her through her 
first flight. 

When we alighted from the plane at 
Tocumen Airport outside of Panama 
City, there were more people to meet 

Graham gets finished with his crusade? Do the Anglican Parishes close down 
for summer vacation like our Anglican Churches here do? 

Lord, I was certain when you found out that we Episcopalians were closing 
down for the summer, that you would take a vacation also. I suppose that if we 
humans could just get control of things here on earth, it would give you a chance 
for some rest. It seems that instead of gaining control, we lose a little more each 
day. Lord, I hope you don't decide to take off for the summer because we're 
still here and it sure could turn out to be a mess without your continual holding 
on to us and entering into almost everything that goes on here. 

If we seem to be fading out during the next several weeks, it's just because 
we're a little further away and the prayers just don't seem to flow during these 
hot summer days. 

Don't worry a bit, though — when September comes we'll be right back. We 
haven't really stopped caring — we're just taking a summer vacation.

us than there were getting off the plane 
with our group. The Frasers and Jackie 
Bryan renewed acquaintences with 
Bishop Gooden, the Carrals, Fathers 
Terry Ford, John Fields and Clarence 
Hayes plus many others. Many North 
Carolinians already in Panama were 
there to greet us including several stu- 
dents participating in a summer work 
camp in our companion diocese. Also 
awaiting our arrival were Father Ken 
Tabor and Father and Mrs. Phillip 
Cato who were down with the student 
group. Having a Bishop along was an 
advantage, we discovered more than 
once. This time we received the red 
carpet treatment. We were passed right 
through customs without luggage in- 

They piled us with our luggage into 
cars and took us to the Lux Hotel 
which was to be our headquarters for 
nine of the fourteen nights we were in 
the country. Over coffee we were dis- 
cussing local Communists with a young 
priest who had just returned from the 
seminary in Puerto Rico to find that 
the Reds instigated riots in the streets. 
He explained the situation as best he 
could saying that though the commu- 
nists are outlawed, and there are few 
of them, they are active and dedicated. 
Somewhat ruefully he added that if we 
had a few Christians as dedicated as 
those few Communists, we'd certainly 
harve a dynamic church! 

The next two days we spent meet- 
ing people, sightseeing and shopping. 
Early Friday morning Lila Randan 
picked up four of our group at 7:50 
a.m. to go to the food, animal and 
flower market ... a surprisingly clean 

Indians, Produce at Market 

place in spite of the large variety of 
fish, exotic fruits and vegetables and 
meats all in the open. Many people 
with straw satchels slung over their 
shoulder must shop daily for lack of 
refrigeration. By 10 a.m. anything 
worth buying has been sold and the 
merchants dismantle their booths en- 
tirely, removing all food and property 
till 5 a.m. the next day when it's time 
to set up again. 

That evening we had "North Caro- 
lina Night" at the Cathedral Center in 
the Canal Zone. Most of the congre- 
gation were Americans, British or West 
Indians whose native language is Eng- 
lish, so that our program could be pre- 
sented without difficulty. Various 
aspects about North Carolina were dis- 
cussed by members of our group to in- 
form Panamanians about our home 
state. Marge Cole got up to speak on 
the activities of churchwomen and pre- 
faces her talk with these words of ap- 
preciation for the warm hospitality, 
"We had trouble getting here because 
of the air strike, but we made it. I only 
hope we have twice as much trouble 
leaving Panama!" Following the pres- 
entation of a few slides by Gene Bol- 
linger, Bishop Fraser played a game 
with the audience. He spelled out the 
word Episcopal. Persons with the last 
names beginning with the letter given 
received a sample of cigarettes or a 
pair of nylon hose as the sex required. 
It was great fun. Afterwards we had 
a chance to chat with the people of the 
audience over punch and pastries. Since 
our groups spoke limited Spanish, com- 
fortable communication was possible 
only when Panamanians could speak 

English. This was the case everywhere 
we went. 

Saturday evening after a day of sight 
seeing, and a short briefing on the ac- 
tivities of the Diocese of Panama by 
Bishop Gooden, we all went to the Uni- 
versity Student Center for a few hours 
of socializing with clergy from the Zone 
and nearby areas, and for a buffet din- 
ner. Would you believe a barbeque 
chicken dinner? At this point we were 
meeting so many people it was hard to 
remember a name and which face goes 
with that name, and which wife is 
whose. There were also quite a few lay 
people. It was an evening of getting 
further acquainted and revealing some- 
thing of ourselves to each other. 

Sunday we went singly or in small am 
groups to different parishes for church 
services and then to the homes of dif- 
ferent clergy for dinner. 

For those of us attending Spanish 
speaking services it was the first time. 
Fortunately the form of the service is 
identical, so it wasn't difficult to follow. 
If we tried to speak the parts with the 
congregation though, it was a tongue 
twisting experience! Miser icordissimo 
(most merciful) doesn't exactly roll off 
one's tongue! 

It's good that we visited different 
congregations because the situation 
and problems of each place differ, and 
we compared notes afterwards. Ann 
Elliott visited Father Fred Raybourne's 
mission in La Chorrera. The lovely 
church and rectory have been built en 
tirely from funds from the Diocese and 
from outside sources. He has a small 
and apathetic congregation who give 
little money and no time to the church. 


The Churchman 

Eyes Right! 

Father Raybourne feels that they've 
been receiving from the outside long 
enough and must now begin to give of 

In contrast to this parish is Father 
Clarence Hayes' church and school of 
St. Christopher, with an active inter- 
ested congregation. They have an 
acolyte guild and altar guild and the 
parishoners do all the work in the 
church that periodically needs doing. A 
[school started last year for 12 students 
has mushroomed so that this year there 
are 97 students and no place for ex- 
pansion. The school has already taken 
over the rectory. The Hayes have 
moved out, yet there still isn't enough 
room. The congregation has mustered 
up $5,000 in a very short time and the 
National Council of Churches has pro- 
vided a substantial gift of money to- 
wards a new school. The problem is 
that there isn't even the minimum 
amount needed to build even an incom- 
plete structure which can be used for 
classroom structure till more funds are 
raised. If space isn't provided by next 

Colegio Episcopal Youngsters 

April the fifth graders will be tossed out 
in the streets again — probably never to 
enter a school again. So the problem 
here is money. The parish is draining 
it's collective pocket and it's not 
enough. Outside help is needed! 

Others of us visited the Church of 
San Marcos, a beautiful church with an 
intricate mosaic cross and black Christ 
dressed in a king's regalia. The cross is 
handmade by a local artisan. Father 
Carral from Cuba and Father Ford, a 
Panamanian educated in the USA, 
minister jointly to both English and 
Spanish speaking congregations. There 
is a Spanish and an English service 
each Sunday and the two padres take 
turns holding services. There is but one 
altar guild, vestry, acolyte guild draw- 
ing from all the parishoners. The vestry 
meetings are bilingual. The men use 
whichever language they can best ex- 
press themselves. 

The Colegio Episcopal, an elemen- 
tary school associated with San 
Marcos, teaches a large percentage of 
its courses in English to answer part of 
a growing need in Panama for a 
bilingual education. In the following 
two days the rest of the group visited 
the churches and schools that only a 

Tar Heels Try Coconut Milk 

Interior Indian Family 

few of us could visit on Sunday. When 
we all visited the Colegio Episcopal, 
classes were in session. Children of all 
nationalities and of all races were rep- 
resented. Many parents want an educa- 
tion so badly for their children that they 
have to struggle to scrape together the 
$250 yearly fee. The quality of educa- 
tion at this school and many other 
parochial schools is so much better 
than that offered by the public schools 
that more and more youngsters seeking 
admission are being refused. It's diffi- 
cult to get competent teachers too, be- 
cause the nearby Canal Zone can pay 
much higher salaries. 

One afternoon we visited the Bella 
Vista girls orphan home maintained by 
the Diocese. Two older girls, Digna, 
an exquisite part oriental girl with 
shoulder length black hair, and Sandra, 
a perky gal who wants to become a 
bilingual secretary, both knew English 
from school and were at ease talking 
with us. Digna, Sandra and a few 
others had met Bishop and Mrs. Fraser, 
Mrs. Bryan and others of the group on 

Ruins of Colon Fort 


Sunday and on previous trips and ran 
to hug them when they arrived. The 
need for contact and concern is over- 
whelming. Roger Gant took palaroid 
pictures of each girl for use in the states 
to set up a foster parent plan. I never 
saw such tickled youngsters and teen- 
agers. The attention and the pictures 
made them and us happy. One sweet 
child shly said, "This has been my 
happy day." It makes one feel guilty 
about how lucky we are. 

Wednesday, the 20th, our group 
hauled its collective self out of bed 
about 5:30 a.m. to get to breakfast 
(coffee and toast) prepared especially 
early for us by the hotel. We gulped 
breakfast and the Bishop "moved us 
out" to the train station where we had 
to wait, after all the rush, for 20 min- 
utes for the train. The rickity old train 
was fun . . . swaying along the track 
with the windows open to let in the 
still cool early morning air. On the 
train a vendor came along the aisles 
selling coffee and food. From the win- 
dows we could see the ships on the 
canal and some of the Canal Zone 
Company and some U. S. military in- 
stallations. Archdeacon Webster and 

Eighteen North Carolinian teen- 
agers spent six weeks of overseas ser- 
vice in Panama this past summer un- 
der the sponsorship of the Episcopal 
Diocese of North Carolina. 

The first three weeks of the venture 
was lived at an Episcopal conference 
center at Santa Clara in the Missionary 
District of Panama. There the young 
Tar Heels built a "bohio," or open pa- 
vilion, for conference center activities. 
They were joined by young people from 
Panama who worked with them on the 
construction project. The pavilion will 
be called the "North Carolina Pa- 
vilion." Money for the bohio was do- 
nated by St. Timothy's Church in Win- 

The final three weeks saw the group 
divided to work in a number of parishes 
and missions in the area of Panama 
City. Smaller teams carried out "vaca- 
tion Bible school" type activities, parish 
calling and other tasks while living with 
church families in the area. Many had 

his wife greeted us in Colon and we 
set out in a bus for our second break- 
fast prepared by the church women at 
St. Margueritas. We visited several mili- 
tary bases and the School of the Ameri- 
cas, an institution conducting classes 
and training in Spanish for Latin 
American military personnel. We were 
all very much impressed as Col. Hell- 
more, commandant of the school, 
"briefed" us. He said there is a risk of 
training foreign men to return and use 
the military training they've learned 
against you, but the risk is worth it in 
terms of the education gained and the 
understanding which develops between 
men of different, perhaps hostile, coun- 

We visited the Jungle Operations 
Command training Zoo which had rep- 
resentative live jungle animals on dis- 
play. While we were looking at the 
monkeys Lu Lashmit almost lost her 
scarf and hair to an over friendly 
monkey with a long handy tail. We had 
a picnic lunch at old Fort San Lorenzo 
which changed hands between the En- 
glish and Spanish many times in its his- 
tory. American tanks were lined up on 
the coast to practice shooting at targets 

an opportunity to visit the Student Cen- 
ter at the University of Panama, re- 
cently constructed with gifts from the 
Diocese of North Carolina. 

This "Summer for Christ" youth 
work-camp was sponsored as part of 
the "companion diocese" relationship 
between the Diocese of North Carolina 
and the Missionary District of Panama. 
The Rev. and Mrs. Kenneth Taber of 
Greensboro and the Rev. and Mrs. 
Philip C. Cato of Raeligh conducted 
the trip. 

Teen-agers making the trip were: 
Kay Westmore and Vicki Gauthier of 
Raleigh; Randy Embree of Durham; 
Karen Thomas of Chapel Hill; Carol 
Schrimp of Statesville; Susan Short of 
Winston-Salem; Claire Brown, Becky 
Barney, Tracy Fayssoux, Alice Klemm, 
Patsy Maxwell, Harry Watson, Sa- 
rah Jo. Wood and Anna Robinson of 
Greensboro; and Max Angerholzer, 
Bucky Winfield, Jim Marshall and 
Mary Lou Lipinski all of Charlotte. 

out at sea. The Frasers, the Lashmits f 
and several other war games enthusiast j 
waited patiently for the shooting to 
begin, but finally gave up and we 
loaded the bus ready to go-when 
BOOOM!! The Bishop was out of the 
bus and 200 yards back to the lookout 
point before the blink of an eyelid. I 
have never seen a man run so fast. So 
the rest of us unloaded a bit more 
leisurely and watched for a while. 

We took our left over ice cream to 
an old people's home maintained by 
the church. These people live in meager 
but clean surroundings. They were ever 
so glad to have a few visitors. They 
sleep three or six to a room. One 
woman had a larger than life portrait 
of John Kennedy taken from some 
magazine and framed on her bureau. 

Following a visit to the Diocesan 
Academy directed by Padre Blake, a 
quick shopping spree, dinner at a Span- 
ish restaurant (where they kept pitchers | 
of wine on the table like most places 
do water), we presented our speeches 
and slides of North Carolina night to 
a packed congregations. We were flat- 
tered by the atendance and enchanted 
when they sang. Ann Elliot spoke to 
the women telling them that "We have 
three things in common: The same i 01 
God, the same church, and our hus- j 4 
bands and famiiles to care for." After- ; hi 
wards when we had time to chat a bit, j I 
a lady of the congregation said, "How k 
wonderful it is that you really came for I« 
a visit. We certainly appreciate your \ h 
contributions to our schools and schol- j n 
arsbip funds, but that isn't the same!" m 

Then we swayed back to Panama 
City on the transcontinental railroad - 
and crawled into bed about 11:30. Ex- ^ 
cept for three diehards who got up at j p a 
5 a.m. for a plane trip to the San Bias j,, 
Islands to see the Indians and sights, j, 
the rest of us slept late and caught up j | 
on odds and ends before our trip to ^

after returning from Colon the 20th, ?J

On the 22nd we left the hotel at 5:40 
a.m. and arrived in David at 8:30 p.m. j. 
after a bouncing bus ride to the interior 
of Panama. The changing complexion j, 
of the land provided a myriad of op- 5 
portunities for our shutterbugs. Father t

were still waiting even though we were §

Diocese Gets New Deacons, Priests 



ORDINATION SCENES — The Rt. Rev. Thomas A. Fraser, Jr., bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of North Carolina, is 
shown here (left photo) with new deacons and priests. Ordained deacons in recent services in Saint John's Church at Char- 
lotte were: Clay Howard Turner, Rocky Mount; Sefton Frank James Abbott, Thomasville; Harold Womack Payne, 
Walnut Cove; and Philip Robert Byrum, Tarboro. Ordained priests were: The Rev. John Grafton Cockrell, Cooleemee; 
the Rev. Harvey Gerald Cook, Salisbury; the Rev. Thomas Joseph Garner, Salisbury; the Rev. James Thomas Prevatt, 
Tenafly, N. J.; and the Rev. Carey Erastus Sloan, III, Salisbury. From left are: Mr. Byrum, Bishop Fraser and Mr. Payne, 
front row; Mr. Turner and Mr. Abbott, second row; Mr. Sloan and Mr. Cook, third row; and Mr. Prevatt, Mr. Cockrell 
and Mr. Garner, back row. The picture at right was made during the service. The above ordination pictures . . . plus that 
on the front cover of this issue . . . were made by Tom Walters, professional photographer of Charlotte and a member of 
St. Andrew's Church. 

two hours late. After an Italian (in 
Panama?) Lasagna dinner we checked 
into the Nacional Hotel, and collapsed! 
In the morning our group split into 
three units. One stayed in David for 
two days meeting people and sightsee- 
ing. Father Arrunategue told us that 
the main problem in his mission area 
is making contact with people, espe- 
cially men. Most of his congregation 
are women whose husbands are inac- 
tive Roman Catholics. Another unit 
went to Puerto Amuelles and a third 
went to Almirante where Padre 
Spaulding ministers to people living in 
shacks on stilts. 

The entire group reconvened in 
Boquete for a day of evaluation and 
general recouping. We stayed in a 
chalet like lodge, more Swiss than Span- 
ish, in a valley nestled between moun- 
tains which seemed to have their heads 

in the clouds half of every day. At 
Boquete and on the bus as we bounced 
our way back to civilization (bigger 
cities and a faster pace of life) we tried 
to determine where the real value of 
our trip arose. It's one thing to hear 
that schools and orphanages and uni- 
versity centers in Panama need atten- 
tion from North Carolina, but to see 
these places and to meet the people is 
another thing. The trip had value not 
only to the participants but to the peo- 
ple they represented. The 18 partici- 
pants in the Bishop's Tour were merely 
a go-between with first hand knowledge 
of situations, not on paper, but real! 
They may come back and inform their 
parishes and the entire Diocese so that 
the Diocese, or rather the people in it, 
can act. 

Perhaps the most significant result 
of the companion diocesan exchange 

was best expressed by the West Indian 
woman who told us "How wonderful 
it is that you really came for a visit. 
We certainly appreciate your contribu- 
tion . . . but that isn't the same." It 
meant a great deal that some people 
from faraway were concerned enough 
to leave their families and businesses 
to find out, in person, what Panamanian 
Episcopalians are like and what their 
problems are . . . rather than accepting 
someone else's word about the prob- 
lems and ignoring the people, merely 
satisfied to send a check. 

The friendships which were estab- 
lished by this trip will last a long time. 
When Panamanians think of North 
Carolinians, and visa versa, they will 
think of people with faces, names and 
personalities who are interested . . . 
and not just a geographic location on 
a map!

try (but in such cases, a pro-rata refund of the pre- 
mium would be made).

you only 60C) and you pay nothing till 
after your drive is over. Anything remain- 
ing unsold can be returned for full credit!

Church of the Month 

Church of the Epiphany, Leaksville 


Rector, Church of Epiphany 

The Church of the Epiphany, Leaks- 
ville, was formed as a congregation on 
September 16, 1844. Noah Joyner, 
Rawley Galloway, Edward Brodnax, 
Fanet Brodnax, Sarah Gallaway, Lu- 
anda Gallaway, Emily Joyner, Robert 
rodnax, Charlotte Lawson, Walter 
Binford and Jones Bruton were the first 
ongregation. The Rev. John R. Lee 
was the first rector. 

The church building was conse- 
crated on the second Sunday after 
Trinity, 1847 by the Right Rev. Sil- 
imen Ives, bishop of North Carolina. 

One of the communicants of the 
hurch was Patrick N. Henry, son of 
Virginia's Patrick Henry who lived in 
-eaksville and taught in a private 
icademy. Three of the Henry children 
Mary Virginia, an unnamed infant 
son, and Elizabeth Ann ... are buried 
n the churchyard with headstones 
marking the graves. Mr. Henry served 
is secretary pro tern of the vestry, and 

his signature is on the vestry minutes 
for April 13, 1846. He and Susan 
Henry, his wife, were confirmed by 
Bishop Ives on October 19, 1845. 

Stephen A. Douglas, United States 
senator-elect of Illinois, was married to 
Miss Martha Denny Martin on April 7, 
1847, in the parish of the Church of 
the Epiphany. 

Rectors of the Church of the Epi- 
phany have included John R. Lee, 
John T. Clark, William J. Gordon, 
Morrison Bethea, Moultrie Moore, Jr., 
Thomas J. C. Smyth, Hampton Price 
and Roland Moncure. 

Today, the Church of the Epiphany 
is a parish of some 169 communicants 
and 220 baptized persons. In 1958, a 
parish house was completed and since 
that time various improvements have 
been made to the church including the 
addition of new pews, new carpeting, a 
new heating and air conditioning sys- 
tem, a pipe organ, and new damask 

Warren B. Wilson is senior warden. 
T. Henry Knott is junior warden and 
Mrs. Hurdle Lea, Jr., is president of the 

Churchwomen while Mr. Lea serves 
as president of the Men's Club. 
T. Hayes Barker is organist and choir- 
master and Mrs. Betsy D. Nelson is 
Church School organist. There are 
three lay readers and there is an active 
church school program. 

Each year the congregation of the 
Church of the Epiphany celebrates its 
anniversary with a service and picnic 
luncheon on the church lawn on the 
Sunday nearest the date of its founding. 

The Church of the Epiphany con- 
ceives its ministry to be a changing one 
in the face of the industrial community 
which surrounds it. Efforts are being 
made by the parish to understand and 
meet the changing needs of this grow- 
ing industrial community.

The Bishops Letter: 

Here's Latest Information On 
Operation Of The Penick Home 

Friends of the Diocese: 

I know you will be interested in hearing something about our Bishop Edwin A 
Penick Memorial Home in Southern Pines. There has been a lot of thought an< 
many man hours given to this diocesan institution. The Board of Directors is no\ 
meeting quarterly and the Executive Committee every month. We owe all th 
members of these two groups our gratitude for their interest and contribution 

In this short memorandum, I am not going into any depth but merely attemp 
to highspot the more important activities about which I feel you would like I 

1. Effective September 1 the revised rate for members of The Home is $27 
per month. Concurrently with the upward revision of rates, the Board of Di 
rectors made it known that "no one presently in residence in The Home will hav 
to leave because of their, or their family's inability, to meet the change in rates. 

2. The first item brings me quickly to the second. The Board of Directors ha 
ruled that the monies now in the Mother's Day Fund will be used insofar a 
possible to underwrite or supplement the expenses for present members in Th 
Home. Further, the annual Mother's Day solicitation of funds for The Penic 
Home will be used exclusively for those who may be admitted who do not hav 
adequate assets to meet the required expenses. This is a significant decision. ] 
establishes a very worthwhile purpose for the use of the limited Mother's Da 
Fund and it also emphasizes the urgency to develop at once the need for givin 
within the Diocese that we can take care of those who may be in need. 

3. The Board of Directors also has decided to proceed with the establishmer 
of a limited extended care section consisting of 9 beds. This will enable The Horn 
to provide nursing care for those members who may require more health service 
than are now generally available in the residence section of The Home. Basically 
The Penick Home is still a home for the ageing with accommodations for 3 

4. The importance of the fourth item is appreciated by the ladies! Beauty she- 
facilities given by Mr. and Mrs. Alex Galloway in memory of Martha Bu 
Erckman are to be provided in The Home. 

5. A refrigerator recently has been given to The Home for members to keej 
their snacks. It is being located in the Arts and Crafts Room. 

6. For those who have not been to The Home recently, you have missed seek 
a beautiful fountain and patio, the gift of an anonymous donor. The fountaL 
especially when it is lighted at night, has attracted many visitors. 

7. You will be interested in knowing that in conjunction with the change i> 
rates, members of the Admissions Committee and the Chairman of the Financ 
Committee were available to all members in The Home, the donors and merji 
bers of the family, to explain the agreement supplement, the revised rates aij ( 
also describe the limited extended care facilities which are to be provided at tli - ; 
nominal rate of $3.50 per day in addition to the resident rate. 

8. Further, the "sharing principle" is to be emphasized in making the financi J 
arrangements for admission. The Board discussed this at great length and d 
termined it is good for The Penick Home since it is a common and prevale: 
practice for other church affiliated homes of this type. As the terminology i 
dicates, this practice is not intended to take all one's assets; it shares them onj 
mutually agreed to satisfactory basis. 

I obviously have covered just the minimum news in an attempt to bring y<| 
up-to-date. I hope you may have the opportunity soon to visit our Home. H [ 
should be very proud of it. Incidentally, if you are aware of an interested c; 
date, it may be well to have him or her communicate with the Chairman, Afcj 
missions Committee, care of The Home, as early as possible. We have oe|I 
limited facilities and we want to be sure that they are used to best advanta»ii 

Faithfully in Christ I

The Church 

Bishop Calls A Special Convention 
To Act Upon Request For Assistant 

A special convention of the Epis- 
copal Diocese of North Carolina has 
been called to act upon a request by 
the Rt. Rev. Thomas A. Fraser for an 
assistant bishop. However, a new bishop 
will not be elected at this convention, 
it is emphasized. 

The special convention has been 
scheduled at Burlington on November 
12, it is announced by the Rev. Carl F. 
Herman, secretary of the Diocese. The 
Church of the Holy Comforter has 
Deen selected as a site for the special 
meeting of delegates from approxi- 
nately 125 parishes and missions in 
;he Diocese. 

Bishop Fraser served as coadjutor 
mder Bishop Richard H. Baker for 
ive years before the latter retired in 
Fuly of last year. Bishop Baker was 
coadjutor to the late Bishop Edwin A. 
Penick before moving into the post of 
op leadership in the Diocese. 

Other diocesan bishops who served 
is coadjutors are: Bishop Penick, from 
1922 to 1932; Bishop Joseph B. 
Cheshire, for several months during 
L893; and Bishop Theodore B. Ly- 
nan from 1873 to 1881. 

Bishop Fraser may request the elec- 
ion of either a coadjutor (who will 
lutomatically succeed Bishop Fraser 
lpon his retirement) or a suffragan 
vho will not be subject to automatic 
iuccession to the office of diocesan 
)ishop . . . without a subsequent elec- 
ion. Bishop Cheshire was assisted 
rom 1918 until 1928 by a suffragan, 
he late Bishop Henry B. Delany. 

Following a decision at the Novem- 
>er convention to elect an assistant 
)ishop, the Diocese of North Carolina 
nust seek approval of the proposed 
:lection by all American Episcopal 
Church bishops having jurisdiction and 
>y each of the 78 diocese standing 
ommittees within the national church. 

After approval by a majority of the 
lioceses and bishops throughout the 
Vmerican Episcopal Church the elec- 
ion of a bishop may be scheduled 
nd held. The election may be held 
t either a regular or special conven- 
ion. Following election, the bishop- 
lect must be approved by a majority 
f dioceses and bishops of the national 
hurch before his consecration.

The great writings from 20 centuries 
of Christian wisdom have been made 
available to the reading public at maga- 
zine prices by St. Charles' House, an 
Illinois publisher. These will not be 
the complete works of saints and 
writers, but relevant selections pub- 
lished in booklet form of 48 or more 
pages, bound in colorful text covers 
that sell at 45 cents each from news- 
stands, church tract tables, and general 
book stores. Each booklet will treat 
the works of one writer, containing the 
kinds of passages and quotations that a 
reader himself typically would jot down 
for remembrance. 

Most of the basic works excerpted 
are out of print, a spokesman for the 
publishers explained, and many are 
unavailable excepting to scholars. Two 
booklets will be issued monthly under 
the title "Excerpts From The Saints 
and Great Writers of The Church," and 
will be in two series; the Anglican. and 
the General Series. Published in June 
are excerpts from the writings of Jere- 
my Taylor, seventeenth century Angli- 
can Divine often named the adornment 
of English literature, and Saint Basil 
the Great, fourth century archbishop 
of Ceasarea, who is called the Eastern 
Saint Benedict for his contributions to 
the growth of monasticism in the East- 
ern Church. The publishers remarked 
that the relevance of much of the Chris- 
tian writings over two thousand years 
to the problems and dilemmas con- 
fronting society today is continually 

Within the scope of the project will 
be works from the Early Church Fath- 
ers, medieval theologians and teachers 
of the spiritual life, to such near-con- 
temporaries as the great English mystic, 
Evelyn Underhill, and the French Ab- 
bot, Dom Marmion. The publishers 
believe that this venture marks the first 
time that the full range of writings from 
Orthodox Christendom are made popu- 
larly available, though they cited distin- 
guished contributions made in recent 

choir cassocks, for summer wear, in 
varying sizes and degrees of whiteness, 
to give to any church that wants them 
and will pick them up as is. Also avail- 
able are two short-handled candle light 
snuffers, according to the rector, the 
Rev. L. Bartine Sherman. 

years in popularizing works of indi- 
vidual writers or of various periods. 

While St. Charles' House makes no 
claim to fresh contributions to scholar- 
ship with its series, in several instances 
new translations are underway for the 
series from original manuscripts in the 
Library of the Bodleian at Oxford, 
from manuscripts in the British Mu- 
seum and from collections on the 
Continent. The little booklets will be 
published monthly not in any order of 
chronology, but will often coincide with 
the month in which the Saint is com- 
memorated. For persons wanting the 
full set over the four or five years of 
publication, the "Excerpts" are also 
available on an annual subscription 
basis as a periodical at $6.25 a year.

Committee Reports On Clergy Leave 

Little Anna Fished For Polliwogs 
At Wedding Of Bishops Daughter 

Editor's Note: The following is 
reprinted . . . without comment 
. . . from "The Shepherd's Horn," 
bulletin of the Church of the 
Good Shepherd at Rocky Mount. 
It is an account of a wedding writ- 
ten by the rector, the Rev. Charles 

Wedding accounts are not too thrill- 
ing for the average man; but I at- 
tended a wedding recently that I would 
like to share with you. 

The bride was Paneen Gordon, 
daughter of Bishop William Gordon of 
Alaska. Nancy and I sang in the choir 
and had a ringside view of the beauti- 
ful occasion. The bride was given away 
by an old friend from North Caro- 
lina, Dr. Syd Alexander, her god- 
father. The bridesmaids wore green. 
The service was held in the Chapel 
of the Transfiguration at Kanuga, and 
most of that beautiful family of Gor- 
dons were present, along with some 
lovely strangers from the Missionary 
Diocese of Alaska — plus several dis- 
tinguished laity, clergy, bishops, and 
even the Presiding Bishop, John Hines. 

All went well. The rain even stopped 
in time for us to process, singing the 
hymn St. Patrick's Breastplate lustily. 
When the service was concluded, the 
ushers forgot — in all the excitement 
— to return to escort the mothers out 
of the chapel. Bishop Gordon, stand- 
ing in the sanctuary, waited a minute; 
and then, in all of his vested finery, 
stepped down and took his wife, Shir- 
ley, on one arm and the groom's 
mother on the other, and escorted them 
to the front door. It looked as if it 
were planned, and was one of those 
special traditions practised only in 

The reception followed. Then little 
Anna Gordon (age seven) slipped out 
to change from the dainty white dress 
she had worn for her sister's wedding. 
Where she found it I do not know, 
but Anna soon returned, barefooted, 
decked out in some sort of billowy, 
flowing outfit that looked very much 
like a nightgown. 

The bride and groom left in a shower 
of rice. "Just Married" was printed on 


A resident of Penick Memorial 
Home at Southern Pines since it 
opened in the spring of 1964, Miss 
Delia Adams, was guest of honor 
at a party on her 70th birthday 

Miss Adams shares a birthday 
and a handicap with a woman of 
world-renown, Miss Helen Keller. 
Miss Adams, too, is blind, and 
has been from birth. But like Miss 
Keller, she long ago learned to 
live with her blindness. 

She types, reads Braille, plays 
the organ in the Penick Home 
Chapel and sings in the choir at 
Emmanuel Episcopal Church. 

One of the gayest and liveliest 
of the residents at the home, her 
favorite occupation is reading her 
Braille Bible. 

the car in white shoe polish with a 
very professional-looking Old English 
script. Immediately after, the Bishop 
and his family were to leave to return 
by air to Alaska. (The strike had 
ended the day before — impressing 
everyone again with the Gordon's 
faith.) But little Anna was nowhere 
to be found. While someone called 
the airport to hold the plane, some- 
one else found Anna, wading in her 
gown, catching polliwogs! 

Anna was dragged from the creek. 
A mad dash was made to the airport. 
All were finally bound back to 

Anxious to dress her youngest in 
something more suitable for conti- 
nental travel than a nightgown, Shirley 
Gordon began to look for Anna's suit- 
case. No luck. The bride and groom 
had taken it, with their luggage, on 
the honeymoon! 

Long live Bill, Shirley, Paneen, 
Anna, and all of the Gordons. Theirs 
is one of the finest and most beloved 
families in the Episcopal Church. And, 
by the way, Paneen, your wedding was 

Editor's Note: The Diocese of 
North Carolina has a special Com- 
mittee on Clergy Leave of Ab- 
sence. The committee met recently 
and two of its members joined 
forces in an effort to bring to the 
Diocese the nature of the prob- 
lems with which the committee is 
concerning itself. Their article 


In his address to the Diocesan Con- 
vention in 1965, Bishop Fraser said of 
the clergy in this Diocese ". . . He 
needs an opportunity to go back to 
school where he can renew the dis- 
cipline of mind and spirit so that he 
may come back to the parish church 
and undertake with new vigor the strife 
in which he has chosen to be engaged. 
In many other fields of life, at the 
end of 20 years, a man is eligible for 
retirement. In the ministry, at the end 
of 20 years, he is barely half-way 
through his tour of duty." 

The committee on the Bishop's ad- 
dress recommended: "Bishop Fraser 
comments on the physical fatigue and 
emotional strain of the ministry in- 
flicted by the demands of the office 
and the pace of today's living. He 
suggests some form of sabbatical leave 
in which a clergyman may return to a 
seminary for a period of study and 
rejuvenation. We feel that this problem 
demands attention and recommend 
that the matter be referred to an ap- 
propriate committee of the Diocese for 
further study and development of a 
plan for action." 

A committee was formed to study 
clergy leaves of absence, and has been 
working throughout the year. This 
committee noted a strong recommen- 
dation of the General Convention of 
the Episcopal Church, meeting in Saint 
Louis, Missouri in October 1964, for 
dioceses, missionary districts, parishes, 
missions, and institutions of the church 
to provide for and encourage the prac- 
tice of study-leaves for the clergy. Also 
this convention recommended and en- 
couraged those bodies to discover and 
develop ways and means for putting 
this plan into effect. This convention 
noted that our rapidly changing so- 
ciety and the demands of our com- 
plex modern world require deepened 
understanding by both clergy and laity 
if the Church's witness is to be effec-

BISHOPS PRESENT KANUGA BUILDING PLANS — Bishop Fraser and the bishops of the other four dioceses of North 
and South Carolina which sponsor the Kanuga Conference and Camping Center, have presented new building plans to the 
public. A campaign to raise funds for Kanuga's million-dollar development program is now under way with the Rev. 
John W. Arlington, III, of Clemson, S. C, as general chairman. The proposed architectural plans in part shown here 
are expected to help make Kanuga one of the most outstanding Episcopal conference and camping centers in the South- 
east. Here is a sketch of the lounge with its dramatic cathedral ceiling and fireplace which look out on a panoramic 
view of Kanuga Lake and the surrounding mountains. Kanuga is at Henderson ville. 

tive. The life, both of clergymen and 
the congregations they serve, can be 
greatly enriched by providing periodic 
opportunities for post-ordination study 
by clergymen, either in a theological 
seminary or in any one of a number 
of other study situations such as in 
education, industry, or the arts." 

After looking into the various op- 
portunities for study now available to 
the clergy at seminaries, universities, 
and at the College of Preachers — 
and after studying the leave of ab- 
sence system in operation by some of 
those colleges and universities able to 
grant leaves of absence — the di- 
ocesan committee made suggestions to 
the Bishop. 

It was suggested that the clergy of 
the Diocese be encouraged by the 
Bishop, vestrymen, and mission com- 
mitteemen to take full advantage of 
the various educational programs and 
training institutes offered virtually free 
of tuition and other expense by our 
seminaries, universities, and the Col- 
lege of Preachers. (These programs 
usually take from two to six weeks 
and are not considered as "leaves of 
absence" by this committee.) It was 
also suggested that the Bishop appoint 
a Committee on Clergy Leave of Ab- 
sence and, that this committee con- 
sider the above recommendation as a 
possible guideline for granting and ad- 
ministering leaves of absence for the 
clergy of the Diocese. 

A committee on Clergy Leave of 

Absence has been formed and has 
met. This committee is in full accord 
with the Diocesan Study Committee 
and the Bishop that there is a vital 
need for our clergymen to be able to 
apply for and be granted a leave of ab- 
sence for the purpose of study or train- 
ing. There must be demands on the 
clergyman's congregation and the 
Diocese as well as on the clergyman 
applying for such a leave of absence. 
This committee feels that such de- 
mands can be met and that the re- 
sults will be great as our Church moves 
forward in its witness to our changing 


The committee studying clergy 
leaves of absence will seek action on 
its recommendations at the next di- 
ocesan convention. Why should the 
clergy of this Diocese be granted leaves 
of absence? 

For the past five years the Rev. 
Richard Strong has been rector of St. 
Andrew's, Andrewstown. Everyone ac- 
quainted with Mr. Strong has come 
to accept his sense of vocation as part 
of the man. He lives his faith seven 
days a week. He preaches forthrightly, 
gives tactful, experienced leadership 
to the parish organization, and acts 
on his habit of being where he is 
needed. His parishioners know him 
and love him. Because he is no dog- 

matist Mr. Strong has questions wait- 
ing to be answered: "How much real 
worth to our Christian mission does 
our parish activity add, up to? I keep 
busy, but am I on the top of my job? 
How can we change our lip service to 
Christian love into our way of life? 
When will I face up to answering 
these questions?" Mr. Strong suddenly 
remembers the time, looks at his watch, 
and puts on his jacket to go to the 
scheduled meeting of the community 
interchurch council. 

Obviously effectiveness in any or- 
ganization is limited by the experience 
and knowledge of its members. The 
increasing effectiveness of the Church 
in North Carolina depends in large 
measure upon the increasing experi- 
ence and knowledge of our Mr. 
Strongs. One of the surest ways to 
promote effectiveness in those secular 
professions most nearly parallel to the 
ministry has been found to be the 
granting of leaves of absence for for- 
mal study and planned work in the 
field. No leave of absence is a vaca- 
tion; rather it offers a serious program 
for meeting the opportunities and help- 
ing to solve the problems in the life- 
work of the man who is granted it. 
As Mr. Strong rediscovers old insights 
and finds new ones, not all the ques- 
tions he has been asking will be an- 
swered. But when he returns to St. 
Andrew's after his leave of absence 
he brings a new insight and authority 
to his daily ministry.

A Favorite Sermon 

Editor's Note: This is another installment of a feature which appears from 
time to time. The purpose of this feature is to make available to the entire 
Diocesan Family significant messages from the clergy. Other installments 
in this series will appear in future issues. 


Rector, Chapel Hill 

"The bed is too short to stretch your- 
self on it; the cover is too narrow to 
wrap yourself in it." Isaiah 28:20 

When a tall man sleeps in a short 
bed he must as we say, double himself 
up. If at the same time, his cover is 
narrow, he can choose, nay he must 
choose between covering his back and 
covering his knees. He cannot do both. 
So he spends a miserable, restless, 
and frustrating night, vainly trying to 
stretch out, and equally unsuccessfully 
trying to cover himself. Isaiah, ad- 
dressing himself, to Judah's rulers and 
to Judah's priests and prophets, says 
"having dedicated yourselves to lies 
and falsehood, and having made a 
covenant with death and hell, you will 
very soon be overwhelmed with the 
judgement of the true and living God." 
Whenever we decide upon our own 
way, whenever we make an agreement 
with what is less than true, or with 
what is not vital, alive, purposive, we 
also will find ourselves trying to sleep 
in too short a bed, trying to cover our- 
selves with too narrow a blanket. 

Do you remember that section in 
the Brothers Karamazov called "The 
Grand Inquisitor?" It is the story of 
Christ's return to earth during the time 
of the Spanish inquisition. He is ar- 
rested and thrown into prison where he 
is visited by the Grand Inquisitor. The 
great part of the section is the speech 
of the inquisitor to the Christ whom 
he knows to be Christ. Among other 
things, the inquisitor tells Christ that 
the Church has corrected his work and 
that those things which Christ refused 
at the time of his temptation are now 
the things of which the Church makes 
the most effective use, viz., bread, 
miracles, and the authority. He tells 
Jesus He will be put to death again 
lest he interfere with the way the 
Church is dealing with the problems of 
man at the time. Times have changed 
but again we are attempting to deal 

. . . This Month's Preacher 

with man's salvation in terms Jesus re- 

What we call western civilization is 
most largely dedicated to bread and 
all bread stands for. Man in the 
modern western view is producer and 
consumer. His life is sufficiently moti- 
vated in the minds of many by the 
desire for accumulation. I would be 
churlish indeed to damn a system 
which has been so good to so many. 
Ownership is not inherently wrong any 
more than destitution is inherently right. 
The problem about affluence lies in 
the strange fact that those who have 
enough to know that having does not 
bring happiness, always seem to think 
they will be happy if only they can 
have a bit more, a bit more of the 
same, or a bit better quality, or a bit 
later model, or failing this, something 
a bit more expensive. I heard of a 
man who didn't want much land. He 
simply wanted all the land that touched 
his. I know a woman who always re- 
served not the best, the largest or most 
elaborate but most expensive suite in 
the hotel in which she plans to stay. 

America has been the butt of many 
European jokes because we brag 
about the things people have, more 
bath-tubs than any other people in the 
world; more telephones than anybody, 
and more radios, and TVs and electric 
toothbrushes, and all the rest. "Man 
doesn't live by bread alone," Jesus 
said, but we in the western world seem 
to be trying to prove that bread and 
meat and houses and lands and ways 
of getting about, and methods of com- 
munication, and so forth and so forth, 
will bring us happiness. Bread and the 
other material necessities and comforts 
of life are important but not all im- 
portant. "You can't take it with you." 
Pull down your barns and build 
greater and fill them up so that you 
have no worries for many years. 
"Thou fool, this night shall thy soul 
be required of thee." "The most obvi- 
ous facts," wrote R. H. Tawney, "are 
the most easily forgotten. Both the 
existing economic order, and too many 
of the projects advanced for recon- 
structing it, break down through their 
neglect of the truism that, since even 
quite common men have souls, no in- 
crease in material wealth will com- 
pensate them for arrangements which 
insult their self-respect and impair their 
freedom." Whether in the manner of 
capitalism or of communism, a man 
judged merely in terms of economic 
value, a man given to merely economic 
ends is not fully a man. "The bed is 
too short to stretch himself on it; the 
cover is too narrow to wrap himself in 
it." "Man doth not live by bread alone 
but by every word that proceedeth out 
of the mouth of God." 

There is an unresolved conflict in 
the New Testament which I have never 
been able full to understand. There 
is the consistent refusal by Jesus to 
give to those who ask it a sign au- 
thenticating his messiah-ship. "No sign 
will I give save only the sign of the 
prophet Jonah." This was the sign of 
preaching, the sign of a judgment to 
come, the sign of a self-authenticating 
word. On the other hand miracles, 
wonders, signs seem to flow from him. 
He gives sight to the blind, hearing to 
the deaf, makes the lame to walk, and 
makes the bound go free. Can we 
really have it both ways? Did he heal 
some and allow some to go unhealed? 
Is it the walking on the water, the 
feeding of the five thousand, the rais- 
ing of Jairus's daughter on which our 
faith in him depends? God forbid! Our 
faith derives from his person, his per-

The Straight And Narrow ... By Ad kins 

ception, his power, all displayed in 
word, in act, in kind of atmosphere, 
a numinous quality, a certain "weight 
of glory" which brought his com- 
panions to their feet and sometimes, to 
their knees, in wonder. Those who ate 
with him, who walked over the coun- 
tryside with him, who lay by his side 
upon the ground, who saw him done to 
death upon the cross, asserted with ut- 
most sincerity, and convincing tone 
that he was the son of God, that what 
happened on the cross was not a tragic 
death, but a glorious sacrifice at the 
heart of which was the being of God 
himself. Perhaps something needs to be 
said about how faith in Jesus leads to 
faith in God, and how what he was 
and is provides a clue to what God 
was and is. There isn't any proof in 
the Old Testament or the New Testa- 
ment that Jesus is the son of God. 
Those who wrote the record, the only 
record that we have, give evidence on 
every page that they did not under- 
stand his words or his person. I won- 
der as I read the record, why he ac- 
cepted the title of Messiah when the 

kind of messiah he was seemed worlds 
away from the messiah his followers 
expected. He rarely mentions God by 
the name of God, but called him 
ABBA-father, perhaps the first word 
the Jewish baby ever learned to speak. 
It has become fashionable to belittle 
the accuracy of the New Testament 
because the belittlers say the writers 
didn't know Jesus, never heard him 
say what they report him as saying, 
and were in possession of fragmentary 
material which they eked out with their 
own imaginations, and their own myth- 
making facility. "Innumerable and ter- 
rible," says Lavater, "are the doubts of 
the thinking Christian, But the unin- 
ventible Christ conquers them all." The 
word I would stress here is "unin- 
ventible." I would find it more difficult 
to believe, say, that Mark invented 
this person Jesus, than to believe he 
existed substantially as Mark has re- 
ported him to have existed. Consider 
what Mark must have done to invent 
him. He must have conceived this sub- 
lime Jesus in his imagination, and then 
must have invented his, Mark's, own 

naive and unsophisticated style as a 
method of putting the fiction across, 
making it believeable. We do not be- 
lieve in Jesus because of the miracles, 
but we believe in the miracles because 
of Jesus. The miraculous seen as a 
way of twisting the tail of reality to 
make it succumb to my heart's desire 
is not Christian miracle at all. It is 
rather magic and has nothing to do 
either with our belief in God or in 
His son Jesus Christ. "Miracle is not a 
rending which leaves the natural world 
in tatters, but a something which 
pierces life with God's personal mean- 
ing" — Emerson. Prayer is more the 
power to accomplish God's presence 
than to guarantee a celestial servant to 
pull my chestnuts out of the fire. The 
problems of want, the problems of 
need, the problems of desire all are 
translatable into true prayer, but what 
comes of it is closeness to Him, in- 
stead of gifts from Him. If you think 
religion is a way of currying favor 
with a God who unless you do it prop- 
erly will refuse your requests, but who 
will grant them if you do it properly, 
you are likely to be disappointed. "The 
bed is too short to stretch yourself on 
it; the cover is too narrow to wrap 
yourself in it." 

Perhaps the most insidious tempta- 
tion to which flesh is heir is the temp- 
tation to use force or the threat of it to 
bring about a good result. When the 
father whips his son and tells him: 
"This hurts me worse than it hurts 
you," he is telling the simple truth. Be- 
cause it is a sign that negotiations have 
broken down; moral suasion has no ef- 
fect, love has had to yield to law. 
Teddy Roosevelt "speaking softly and 
carrying a big stick" had the same 
attitude as Stalin, when in the midst of 
World War II, someone said at a con- 
ference what Pius XII wanted to hap- 
pen, he said: "Pius XII, how many 
divisions has he"? I am, to be quite 
frank about it, unwilling for my na- 
tion vis-a-vis the other nations of the 
earth, to make itself defenseless, to lie 
down before them. Nor am I willing 
for the smaller units of government to 
abdicate the use of force in dealing

You can buy people with bread. 
But this is a tenuous, undependable, 
exiguous relationship. It is too short

St. Augustine's Gets 
Grant of $300,000 

Two Episcopal Colleges received at 
the end of May grants totalling a half 
million dollars. For both St. Augus- 
tine's in North Carolina and St. Paul's 
in Virginia the gifts of $300,000 and 
$200,000 respectively are the largest 
in their history. The money was given 
by the Booth Ferris Foundation of 
New York City and will be paid over 
a five-year period. 

Presidents James A. Boyer in Ra- 
leigh and Earl McClenney in Lawrence- 
ville reported that the gifts came after 
a detailed examination of the records 
and objectives of these predominately 
Negro colleges. 

Both institutions are members of the 
Association of Episcopal Colleges 
whose president, Arthur Ben Chitty, 
said, "Gifts like these can alter the en- 
tire history of small institutions, pro- 
viding as they do impetus and encour- 
agement for trustees and alumni." 

NEW CHAPLAIN — The Rev. Wil- 
liam R. Merrill of Sewanee, Tenn., is 
the new Episcopal chaplain to Win- 
ston-Salem. He succeeds the Rev. Rich- 
ard N. Ottaway who will become di- 
rector of the Church and Industry 
Institute to be established at Wake For- 
est College. Merrill comes from Se- 
wanee where he has been instructor 
and tutor for three years at St. Luke's 
Seminary of the University of the South. 
A native of Davenport, Iowa, he is 39, 
single and received his bachelor of sci- 
ence degree from Iowa State University. 
He earned his master of science there 
in 1950. He received the S.T.B. degree 
in 1961 from Episcopal Theological 
School at Cambridge, Mass. Before col- 
lege he served a year in the Army Air 
Corps. After receiving his master's in 
applied psychology, he worked for 
Cummins Engine Co., Inc., at Colum- 
bus, Ind., for six years and for General 
Electric Co. at Lynn, Mass., for two 
years. At both companies he did per- 
sonnel research and testing. It was then 
that he entered the ministry. His first 
full-time parish work was in White 
Plains, N. Y., where he was assistant to 
the rector of St. Bartholomew's Church 
for over two years. From there he went 
to the University of the South, where 
he became an instructor in liturgies, 
pastoral theology and Old Testament. 
As Espicopal chaplain to Winston- 
Salem, Merrill will serve Episcopal 
students and faculty members at Wake 
Forest, Salem and Winston-Salem State 
colleges and the N. C. Baptist Hospital 
Medical Center. He will preach at St. 
Paul's Episcopal Church every fourth 
Sunday and also assist in services held 
at Davis Chapel at Baptist Hospital and 
at the Forsyth Memorial Hospital. 

Planned For 
Church Music 

This fall, for the first time, exami- 
nations are being given in church music 
in behalf of the Episcopal Church. 
They are part of an accreditation pro- 
gram instituted and sponsored by the 
Church's Joint Commission on Church 
Music. The administration of the ex- 
aminations is in the hands of two of 
the Church's most distinguished musi- 
cians, Dr. Leo Sowerby, College of 
Church Musicians, Washington, D. C, 
and Mr. Alec Wyton, organist and 
master of choristers at the Cathedral 
Church of St. John the Divine, New 

The accreditation program arose out 
of a long felt need for objective stan- 
dards to which one might refer to assist 
in the placement of church musicians. 
Those who take and successfully com- 
plete the examinations will be awarded 
a citation by the church verifying 
knowledge of musical requirements of 
the Prayer Book services and the 
Hymnal, as well as an adequate un- 
derstanding of the history of worship 
as practiced in the Episcopal Church. 
Proficiency in instrumental ability and 
choral technique will be indicated in 
the accreditation procedure but will 
not be the primary object of the exami- 
nations. The accreditation program will 
not duplicate American Guild of Or- 
ganists' examinations or other such 
means of certification. 

The aim of the commission in foster- 
ing this program is to increase ap- 
preciation by the Church at large of 
those who are competent in musical 
leadership and performance. Key per- 
sons in each diocese are assisting in 
giving the examinations. Eighteen per- 
sons from 15 dioceses have applied 
for the present set of testings. 

Applications may be had from Jack 
Noble White, P. O. Box 8444, Mo- 
bile, Alabama, 35508, secretary of 
the Joint Commission on Church

Scheduled At Terraces: 

Tenn. Bishop Named To Lead 
ECW's November 6-10 Retreat 

The Rt. Rev. William E. Sanders, 
bishop coadjutor of the Diocese of 
Tennessee, will direct the first of three 
retreats planned for the Episcopal 
Churchwomen during the current year. 
This retreat is scheduled November 
8-10 at the Terraces in Southern Pines. 
Registration forms may be obtained 
from branch secretaries of Devotional 
Life or from Mrs. W. D. Holloman, Jr., 
of Scotland Neck, president of the 

Bishop Sanders was born in 
Natchez, Mississippi and attended ele- 
mentary and high schools in Nashville, 
Tennessee. He received his BA from 
Vanderbilt University, his BD from the 
University of the South, his STM from 
Union Theological Seminary, and was 
awarded a DD by the University of 
the South in 1959. Ordained to the 
diaconate in 1945, he served as curate 
at St. Paul's, Chattanooga. From there 
he went as acting dean at St. Mary's 
Cathedral in Memphis in 1946. He 
became dean of the Cathedral in 1948 
and remained there until he was con- 
secrated bishop coadjutor of the 
Diocese of Tennessee in 1962. 

Bishop Sanders has a long record 
of service both within and outside the 
Episcopal Church, having been di- 
ocesan chairman of the Departments 
of Missions and Church Extension, 
College Work, and Christian Educa- 
tion; a member of the Board of Exam- 
ining Chaplains; president of the Mem- 
phis Ministers Association and of the

. . . Has Wide Experience 

Bishop Sanders married Kathryn C. 
Schaffer in 1951 and they have three 
daughters, ranging in age from thirteen 
to five, and a year old son. 

"The Churchwomen of the Diocese 
are fortunate to have a leader of such 
wide experience in social services and 
in the life of the Church to direct 
their meditations as they draw apart 
two days from the miscellany of their 
lives to consider the meaning of it 
all," says Mrs. W. D. Holloman. 

What Is 

As Christian people we belong to a 
noisy and busy world and are caught 
up in a stream of constant activity. So 
busy are we, and often so noisy, that it 
is hard for us to have the quietness in 
which our souls can dwell upon the 
reality of God and of our relationship 
to Him. 

Our need is twofold: Quiet — in con- 
trast to noise, and inactivity — in con- 
trast to the flux of daily duties. We need 
to break with the complexities of our 
temporal life and to seek the sim- 
plicity and unity which put us in touch 
with the eternal: "Be still and know 
that I am God." 

A retreat is a time of silence with 
God. The silence is supremely im- 
portant. At first it seems queer and 
self-conscious, but as it goes on, the 
deep, unself-conscious peace of it is 
realized. It is a great mistake to try to 
make things "easier" at 'a retreat by al- 
lowing talk at certain times; it makes 
it not easier but harder for the partici- 
pants to enter into the spirit of deep 
silence and to come to enjoy it. 

A retreat is a time of rest. Its note at 
the outset is one of peace and relaxa- 
tion; but the rest is not towards self 
but towards God. The conductor's ad- 
dresses and the intervals of worship 
during the day help the imagination to 
be drawn towards God. The awareness 
comes to us of His greatness, his good- 
ness, His providential ruling of our 
lives, His purpose for us. Unconscious- 
ly, in peace and in freedom, we are led 
to realize God more deeply and to 
make acts of gratitude, love, penitence, 
and resolve towards Him. 

Peace and freedom are the keynotes 
of a retreat; it is not some sort of "hot- 
house" of enforced spiritual exercises, 
neither is it something meant for spe- 
cially pious or spiritually-minded per- 
sons; it is for the ordinary Christian, 
and ordinary Christians are more and 
more being led to find in the practice 
of retreat a way of realizing more deep- 
ly the meaning of their calling. The 
whole Church in these days urgently 
needs more of the spirit of retreat. 
Churchly activities multiply — but is 
there a commensurate deepening in that

quiet waiting upon God of which the 
Bible says so much? 

An old saying has it that the role 
of the Christian teacher is contemplare, 
et contemplata-allis tradere: "To con- 
template and to pass on to others the 
things contemplated." If we neglect the 
first, how shall we ever effectively do 
the second? Priests who make an an- 
nual retreat gain untold benefit for 
themselves and their people. Parishes 
which have a weekend retreat from 
time to time for some of the congrega- 
tion have that deeper realization of 
God from which things unpredictable 
may follow. (The Archbishop of Can- 
terbury; taddled from the Canterbury 
Diocesan Notes: reprinted from The 
Anglican Digest, Summer, 1966.)

Chapel Hill Writer Discusses 
Guidance As A Way Of Living 

Editor's Note: The following 
was written by a retired Chapel 
Hill businessman and was sub- 
mitted for publication in this is- 
sue by Charles H. Waterbury, a 
member of the Church of the Holy 
Family at Chapel Hill. The article 
is entitled "Guidance As the 
Working Basis for Daily Living." 
The author is a member of United 
Christian Congregational Church 
at Chapel Hill. 


A practicing Christian is one who 
has discovered Guidance as a working 
basis for his daily life. When a man 
decides to live a God-guided life, he 
is conscious of a definite sense of di- 
rection — that is to say, he decides to 
go in the right direction rather than 
in the wrong direction. But soon he 
finds that this sense of direction may 
easily be dimmed by careless or selfish 
decisions on the details of his day-

to-day living. No Christian can keep 
his sense of direction clearcut unless he 
learns to measure his judgment de- 
cisions against God's will, not just 
God's will for his life, but God's will 
for specific decisions. To learn that is 
often costly; it demands a deeper and 
deeper sense of commitment to God's 
will; it requires faith and more faith, 
and it takes practice. 

A few years ago I heard a man 
say, "That's too deep for me. My guid- 
ance is through my conscience. I think 
it would be presumptuous for me to 
ask God to decide the little details 
of my life." That man later found that 
guidance is a more realistic working 
basis for his daily life than he had 
first thought. In the meantime, how- 
ever, he had struggled with the two 
questions that have, at some time in 
life, disturbed every Christian. The 
first is, "In how much detail does God 
make His will known?" and second, 
"How can I know God's guidance and 
know that it is God's guidance?" 
Whether I find the answer to these in 
my own life determines whether I have 
a functioning type of Christianity, or 
merely a nominal relationship with 

Someone defined guidance as "two 
percent inspiration, forty-eight percent 
experience, and fifty percent good, 
hard thinking." That means that ask- 
ing for God's guidance does not re 
lieve me of the responsibility for 
making the decision, or for drawing 
on all my experience, or for think- 
ing through the problem at hand with 
a disciplined mind. It means that God's 
guidance comes most often in the form 
of help in disciplining my mind and 
seeing my own experience in the 
proper perspective. It also means, how 
ever, that sometimes there comes an 
inspiration that may cut across my ex- 
perience, or may seem illogical in the 
light of my clearest thinking, but whic 
carries an impelling conviction o 
Tightness that cannot be sidestepped 
These are the instances of God's guid 
ance that sometimes indicate steps we 
do not want to take, and we frequently 
have to take such steps on faith. These 
are the instances that God uses to 
strengthen our faith. 

There are times, however, when 
even experience and disciplined think- 

The Churchman 

ing are not dependable criteria for de- 
termining the guided decision, then 
there are ways by which we can know 
God's will other than through sudden 
inspired thoughts. We learn God's will 
through the Bible, through the experi- 
ence of other Christians who have 
written for us or who talk to us. We 
can get help for learning God's will 
by checking our difficult decisions with 
other people who live close to Christ. 
That represents one of the most valu- 
able aspects of Christian fellowship, 
but does not mean that we let others 
make our decisions for us. The de- 
cisions of each of us are personal 
things between us individually and 
God, so personal, that if I really want 
to know God's will I can know it. 
God's guidance on that basis is both 
a sense of direction and a point of 
reference for our detailed judgment 
decisions. In other words, a working 
basis for our daily lives. 

I tried to drive on a strange road 
with my windshield muddy and I ran 
into a ditch. I got out and cleaned 
the windshield and after that I could 
see the road and didn't run into the 
ditch. Many of us try to go through 
life with muddy windshields. We take 
the wrong fork of the road and lose 
our way, we misread the road signs, 
or miss them altogether. A dirty wind- 
shield will wreck us sooner or later 
against obstacles that with clear vision 
we would have seen. 

That is the first lesson in condi- 
tions for guidance. No use asking God 
for direction if there is mud on the 
windshield — you couldn't see it any- 
way. That is why the first guidance 
any man gets is a conviction as to 
what it is that is dirtying up the wind- 
shield. If he dodges that conviction, 
the mud stays and he drives on blindly 
down his lonely road. 

My small son told his mother one 
morning after prayer, "God told me to 
be good." Next morning he said the 
same thing. Next morning he said, 
"God told me something different this 
time. He said if I once be'd good then 
He'd tell me something else to do." 
The most effective and frequent block 
to God's guidance is to refuse to do 
anything about the last guidance you 
had. God will keep bringing you back 
to that same point till you do some- 
thing about it. 

The next most common block is our 
own self-assertion, which not only in- 
terferes with God's guidance but 
actually nullifies it. I believe that at 

October 1966 

every turn of the road God is trying 
to tell me which decision to make, if 
I will only stop asserting myself. Self- 
assertion is a very subtle form of self- 
ishness, and so long as I see only my- 
self, I can hear no voice but my own. 

Oh, but God wants me to use my 
common sense! Certainly He does. So 
why not use common sense, about guid- 
ance, and while you're about it, why 
not try guidance in your common 

A surrendered Christian cannot say, 
"On this point I'll use my common 
sense, and on that I'll seek God's 
guidance," rather he must say: "In all 
matters I'll let God guide my com- 
mon sense." Common sense exercised 
in any other way than under guidance 
is a direct contradiction of faith. God 
guides us through our common sense 
or not, just so we ourselves decide. 
So-called common sense is a faculty 
inseparable from our other normal 
mental processes, and the only ques- 
tion of importance is: "Does it func- 
tion under God's will or our own?" If 
it functions under God's will, then we 
are already acting under guidance. 

Never flounder between common 
sense and guidance. Guidance does 
not stultify common sense, but 

As chairman of the drive to raise money 
for needed band equipment, Mrs. Arthur 
Koubek of Lyons, Illinois, was faced with 
the problem: how to raise funds quickly, 
without risk or investment. She found the 
solution in the Mason representative's of- 
fer of a free box of candy. When the Mason 
man delivered it, he explained Mason's 
famous protected fund-raising plan. 

Mason supplies your group— complete- 
ly without risk or investment— a choice 
of beautifully boxed, top-quality Mason 
Candies. At no charge, each box has an 
attractively printed band, bearing your 
organization's name, picture, and slogan. 
Mason even pre-pays shipping charges. 
Your group makes a big NET PROFIT of 
66%% (40C on every dollar box that costs 
you only 600) and you pay nothing till 
after your drive is over. Anything remain- 
ing unsold can be returned for full credit! 
No risk, no investment — you pay only af- 
ter you have collected your profit! Many 

strengthens it, and gives it a purpose. 
Common sense is a wonderful faculty 
— God gave it to us and surely ex- 
pects us to use it. God is ready to 
direct it, if we will let Him. This does 
not mean that there aren't times when 
God's guidance directs us into areas 
of action where we must act on faith 
alone, and where common sense can- 
not follow. All it means is that com- 
mon sense under our own will is not 
safe, but under God's will may be used 
for Him. 

If God's guidance is so dependable, 
and comes so clearly, why does it re- 
quire faith to follow it? The answer is 
that while little faith is required to 
see the right decision, it does frequently 
require great faith to accept sight un- 
seen the consequences of that decision. 
It takes faith to take a step where we 
do not see the steps to follow, and 
often we are tempted to demand that 
God show us the whole picture before 
we take the first step. It takes faith to 
wait sometimes until God shows us 
clearly the next step, and then the 
temptation is to run ahead of God's 
guidance. Those are the times when 
self-assertion takes the form of im- 
patience, just as at other times it ex- 
presses itself in stubbornness. They

Here's List Of New Books For 
Consideration Of Episcopalians 

Scientifically, man must be doing 
something right: by his control of the 
physical universe, he constantly in- 
creases his standards of health and com- 
fort; spiritually, however, man must be 
doing something wrong: old personal 
and community relationships are break- 
ing up, more and more individuals are 
breaking down, and the sense of mean- 
ing and high purpose which brought 
our civilization to its present level is 
everywhere so lacking that some peo- 
ple can explain its absence only by 
supposing that God has died. 

E. L. Mascall, professor of Historical 
Theology in the University of London, 
has another explanation. In The Chris- 
tian' Universe, the autumn selection of 
the Episcopal Book Club, he suggests 
that man's intense concentration on the 
material world in recent centuries has 
allowed his natural facility for perceiv- 
ing spiritual things to atrophy. It is a 
matter of record, he notes, that one of 
the marks which has distinguished man 
from beast throughout history has been 
belief in a world beyond his sense ex- 

Dr. Mascall maintains that our urban- 
ized, technological culture has in fact 
stopped short at a half-truth — that life 
and the universe do not explain them- 
selves. He believes that the proper 
response is not to conclude that the 
world therefore is meaningless, but to 
look elsewhere for the explanation. 
Despite the modern philosophy that 
things are so bad that the only good is 
to know the worst, Professor Mascall 
declares that glory keeps breaking 
through from outside and within; 

both test our faith. 

Does that mean that living by God's 
guidance is always an uphill fight — 
that we have to fight first one temp- 
tation and then another, all the way? 
No, of course not. God gives us faith 
for every step He asks us to take, and 
gives us strength to support that faith. 
Christians who have found the secret 
of guidance as a working basis for 
daily life, have a sense of direction, 
a purpose for life, a nearness to Christ, 
a sense of release, and a sense of 

Guidance as a working basis for 
our daily life can change even a hum- 
drum life into an adventure. 

against the theatre of the absurd, he 
points out that life is not lived entirely 
in dust-bins, even symbolical ones. 

It is not cheating to look to a loving, 
transcendent God for life's meaning 
and satisfaction; the fact that man is 
aware of nature and is able to manipu- 
late much of it shows that he has al- 
ready risen (or been pulled) partly out 
of nature to partake of the super- 
natural. The decline of belief in a di- 
vine dimension of the world has not 
brought happiness to Western man; 
the fashionable philosophy of modern 
atheism and secularism is despair. Man 
has needs and aspirations which are 
crushed and suffocated if the physical 
universe is all there is. 

Dr. Mascall offers no cheap answers; 
the advice, "Only believe" is not from 
him; it would be as reasonable to tell 
a man who had had his arm in a sling 
for a year "Only throw." Even Chris- 
tians who want very much to believe 
may have to unlearn much that they 
have absorbed unconsciously from the 
unquestioned secular assumptions 
around them. 

Furthermore, times and knowledge 
have moved ahead, and spiritual tech- 
niques designed for people who had 
simpler work and less distraction may 
be of little use to people today. 

Concluding his book, which has ap- 
preciative things to say about Eastern 
religions and Teilhard de Chardin's 
vision of Christ taking the universe 
into Himself, Dr. Mascall writes, "For 
most people today prayer needs to be 
very simple, very direct, very natural, 
a matter of looking at God and loving 
Him rather than of addressing elaborate 
speeches to Him, a matter of letting 
Him act upon us rather than of giving 
our good advice to Him; and while we 
must find times, however brief, to de- 
vote to prayer and nothing else, it is 
no less essential that our prayer shall 
soak through and permeate our life as 
a whole, so that all our activity and 
surroundings shall be part of our 
prayer-offering to God."

study of the physical world. In The 
Christian Universe, the autumn selec- 
tion of the Episcopal Book Club, E. L. 
Mascall maintains that throughout his- 
tory mankind has found explanation 
for the world perceived by the senses in 
a realm beyond the senses; and he 
shows how modern secularized man can 
regain his natural faculty for appre- 
hending spiritual things after having 
allowed that faculty to atrophy in his 
excitement over his success in measur- 
ing and manipulating material things.

Church of the Month 

St. Paul's, Thomasville 

St. Paul's Church 

The debt-free consecration of the 
Parish House of St. Paul's Episcopal 
Church at Thomasville was held recently 
at a special service conducted by the 
Rt. Rev. Thomas A. Fraser of Raleigh, 
bishop of the Diocese of North Caro- 

The sermon was by the Rev. William 
P. Price of High Point who on Septem- 
ber 7, 1941, officially organized St. 
Paul's as a mission church of the 
Diocese. Other participants included 
the Rev. Claude A. Collins, present 
minister of the church who came here 
in 1964 from Florida, and the Rev. 
E. Lucien Malone, a retired priest of 
the church now living in Thomasville. 
Immediately following the consecration 
an open house reception was held in 
the Jesse and Nan Green Memorial 
Hall of the Parish House. 

The consecration was the second 
event of this type for St. Paul's. The 
first was the consecration of the sanctu- 
ary or church proper, which occurred 
on January 24, 1954 and was led by 
the late Rt. Rev. Edwin A. Penick, 
then bishop of the Diocese. From 1940 
until his death in 1959, Bishop Penick

Construction of the two-story brick

J. L. Darr and Sons of Trinity, as con-

for the building began long before that 
date with a design included in the orig-

Members of the original building 
committee for the parish house, named 
in January 1957, were Mrs. Meade B. 
Hite, Mrs. M. Jack Gilliam, John T.

Members of the Mission Committee or 
the governing body of the church at 
that time were: Mrs. Hite, Mr. Palmer, 
Miss Marie Jones, clerk, M. Jack Gil- 
liam, treasurer, Coy Copple and Mrs. 
Charles Jollay now of Roxboro. The 
two committees and all of the then small 
membership of the church (around 
45 persons) worked together on the 
Parish House project, and with the 
close cooperation of may non-Episco- 
palian friends in the community. 

At the beginning a Parish House 
building fund of around $15,000 had 
been built up. In addition, a local bank 
loan was secured, as was a loan of 
$10,000 from the Diocese. All has 
been paid off ahead of a 10-year sched-

A Layman Views Stewardship: 

How Much Are We Diluting 
Our Giving to the Church ? 

Editor's Note: The following 
article is presented in connection 
with the November Every Member 
Canvass season. Its author is a 
member of the Editorial Board of 
"The Churchman" and is chair- 
man of the Department of Pro- 
motion and Communication. 

Good Shepherd, Raleigh 

How well are you taking care of 
your pigs? 

That was the original meaning of 
stewardship when a steward was a 
'sty-ward' or manager of the pig sty. 
In examining the quality of our stew- 
ardship today I find the following story 
helpful in pointing out the many pit- 
falls we all face: 

"There is a story in France about a 
beloved physician who had come to 
the age of retirement. His patients 
throughout the community decided to 
come together and give him an ex- 
pression of their gratitude and affec- 

"They agreed that 
each family would 
bring a pitcher of its 
best wine, and put it 
in a barrel in the vil- 
lage square for the 
good doctor. All day 
long the people were 
seen taking their of- 
fering and pouring it 
in the barrel. When 
the day ended they 
went back to their 
homes, after the 
proper presentation 
had been made to 
the good doctor, and he was left alone 
with the memory of their love. 

"He took a bit of the wine to the 
fireplace, sat in his favorite rocking 
chair, and took a sip. Then came the 
shock. He sipped again. It was water! 
He returned to the barrel and drew off 
more, only to make sure it was water. 
He called the mayor, and the mayor 
summoned the assemblymen. They 

. . Of Pigs, 

discovered the truth. Everything in town 
had reasoned 'my little pitcher of wine 
won't be missed. I have so little for 
myself. The others will take care of it. 
The little water I substitute will not be 

Question: How much water are we 
substituting as we too practice the fine 
art of self deception in defending our 
false position of downright niggardly 
support of our Church? 

Two thousand years ago our Lord 
said to his followers "Feed my sheep." 
When each one of us has to face up to 
the final accounting to our Lord and 
Master I don't think the big question 
is going to be "Did you feed my 
sheep?" — I think it will simply be 
"Did you Try?". 

The quality of our love, the depth 
of our devotion, the sincerity of our 
gratitude is reflected not so much in 
the amount we set aside to return to 
God, but in the spirit that motivates 
us. It isn't how much we give, it's why 
we give. A lot given reluctantly means 
far less than a little given lovingly. 
Actually God needs nothing, but it is 
our need to give that must be satisfied 
to complete a proper father-son rela- 
tionship. The size of our gift is 
strangely limitless because we can't 
out-give God — the more we give Him 
the more blessings are poured back 
into our lives, like a revolving trust 
fund that has been placed in our care 
as junior partners. 

Therefore let each one of us without 
calculating percentages and budgets 
but only in proportion to what we have 
received offer unto our Father our 
tangible expressions of gratitude and 
love for Him and His Church, bearing 
in mind the soul-stirring words of the 
poet Edwin Markham: 

"Go break to the hungry sweet 

charity's bread, 
For giving is living," the Angel said. 
"Must I be giving again and again?" 
The weary, wondering question 


"No," said the Angel, piercing me 

"Just stop when the Lord stops giv- 
ing to you."

An opportunity to hear one of the 
Anglican Communion's outstanding 
leaders is being offered the Diocese of 
North Carolina in November. The 
Rt. Rev. Stephen F. Bayne, Jr., di- 
rector of the Overseas Department of 
the Episcopal Church and vice presi- 
dent of the Executive Council, will 
preach at four convocational services 
of mission on the meaning of the 
repentance and rebirth to which the 
Christian Church is presently being 
called. He will interpret the implica- 
tions for individual and corporate 
change in the current worldwide move- 
ment for reform of the Church's in- 
stitutional structures and will explore 
the meaning of Christian citizenship 
in response to this demand. 

In addition to the services, Bishop 
I Bayne will conduct one-day teaching 
seminars in the convocations on the 
mission of the Church in the latter 
lhalf of the twentieth Century. Atten- 
dance at these training sessions is lim- 
ited to the clergy and to parish leaders. 
Invitations have been sent to all clergy- 
men, members of vestries and mission 
committees, members of the executive 
committees of Episcopal Church Wom- 
en, and members of diocesan and con- 
vocational commissions. 

The purpose of these sessions is to 
help parish leaders determine the mis- 
sion of the Church in their local situa- 
tions, providing them with both theo- 
logical insight and practical strategy 
for committing the resources of their 
own parishes to the needs and oppor- 
tunities of their unique role in the 
total mission of Christ. In preparation 
for attending the seminars, participants 
have been asked to study Mission Is 
Response by Bishop Bayne, and an 
essay by Andre de Robert entitled 
"The Role of the Laity in the Life and 
Ministry of the Church." 

The Rev. Loren B. Mead, chair- 
man of the Department of Overseas 
I Mission which is sponsoring Bishop 
J Bayne's visit to the Diocese, says: "We 
I If are indeed fortunate that we will have 
( I Stephen Bayne in North Carolina for 
"| five days. No other Episcopalian can 
J bring us his international perspective 
if on the developments of the great new 
J j movement toward mutual responsi- 
• 1 bility within the Anglican Communion, 

and no other person has been in- 
volved more deeply in the practical 
working out of the meaning of mis- 
sion in specific localities. His visit to 
the Diocese provides a major resource 
for every parish and every churchman 
to come to new depths of understand- 
ing of the role of the Church and the 
Christian in a world of change." 

The Rev. Albert Hoag, with the as- 
sistance of Miss Dorothy West and 
Mrs. David Howe of Charlotte, has 
trained a staff of workshop leaders 
who will travel with Bishop Bayne to 
the convocational meetings. They are: 

Not An Election 

The special diocesan conven- 
tion scheduled at Burlington No- 
vember 12 will not elect a new 
bishop but rather act upon a re- 
quest for an assistant bishop. 

The special gathering has been 
called to act upon such a request 
by Bishop Thomas A. Fraser. The 
election of the assistant bishop . . . 
if authorized on November 12 . . . 
may be held at a subsequent regu- 
lar or special convention. 

Bishop Fraser may request 
either a coadjutor (who will auto- 
matically succeed Bishop Fraser 
upon his retirement) or a suffra- 
gan who will not be subject to 
succession without a subsequent 

Mr. Clyde Randolph, Jr., Winston- 
Salem; the Rev. William Dennis, 
Huntersville; the Rev. Albert Newton, 
Wadesboro; Mrs. James Godfrey, 
Chapel Hill; Mrs. J. W. Stewart, Char- 
lotte; Mrs. Eric Flanagan, Henderson; 
the Rev. Eugene Bollinger, Burling- 
ton; and the Rev. Harry Cooke, Salis- 
bury. These leaders, working from 
case study materials prepared by the 
Department of Overseas Mission in 
consultation with Bishop Bayne, will 
help seminar participants assess the 
realities of their local situation. 

Mrs. M. E. Motsinger, Jr., of Roar- 
ing Gap is serving as coordinator for 
the hostesses in the convocations dur- 
ing Bishop Bayne's visit. Her com- 
mittee will provide for the needs of the 
travelling seminar staff. 

The Deans of the four host con- 
vocations are making the arrange- 
ments for the services of mission in 
their areas. 

The service at Christ Church, Char- 
lotte, will be televised in color for re- 
telecast at a later date so that a wider 
audience may have the opportunity of 
hearing Bishop Bayne. The men re- 
sponsible for the successful televising 
of Bishop Fraser's installation last 
year, the Rev. Frank Fagan and the 
Rev. Martin Tilson, will coordinate 
these activities; and the Rev. O'Kelley 
Whitaker, chairman of the diocesan 
Commission on Worship and Music, 
will again be master of ceremonies for 

November 1966 



the service. Further announcements 
will be made of the times scheduled 
for showing the tape on local channels. 

Appointed to the post of director of 
the national church's Overseas De- 
partment in November, 1964, Bishop 
Bayne is the chief inter-church and 
missionary strategist for overseas im- 
plementation of the document called 
"Mutual Responsibility and Interde- 
pendence in the Body of Christ." 
Previously the Bishop served as the 
first Anglican executive officer. With 
headquarters of that post in London, 
he also was bishop in charge of the 
American churches in Europe and of 
personnel in American armed forces 
in Europe. Prior to the four years he 
spent in this work, he was bishop of 
the Diocese of Olympia (Western 
Washington State). 

Born in New York in 1908, Bishop 
Bayne graduated from Amherst Col- 
lege, Massachusetts, and worked for a 
year on the Wall Street Journal before 
deciding to enter a seminary. He re- 
ceived a Bachelor of Sacred Theology 
degree from General Theological Semi- 


nary in 1933 and a year later the de- 
gree of Master of Sacred Theology. 
He holds honorary S.T.D. degrees 
from General Theological Seminary 
and Columbia University; D.D. de- 
grees from Amherst, Whitman, Huron 
and Anglican Theological Colleges, 
as well as from St. Paul's in Tokyo, 
and from Harvard University. He has 
been awarded a Doctor of Laws de- 
gree from Mills College, and degrees 
of Doctor of Literature from Hobart 
and Kenyon Colleges; a degree of Doc- 
tor of Humane Letters from the Uni- 
versity of Puget Sound, and a Doctor 
of Theology from the Australian Col- 
lege of Theology. 

After his ordination to the priest- 
hood in 1932, the bishop served 
for two years as Fellow and Tutor at 
the General Theological Seminary. He 
then became rector of Trinity Parish, 
St. Louis, Mo., and in 1939 moved 
to Northampton, Mass., where he was 
rector of St. John's Parish and chaplain 
to Episcopal faculty and students at 
Smith College. In 1942 he was ap- 
pointed chaplain and chairman of the 
Department of Religion at Columbia 
University, where he continued until 
his consecration as Bishop of Olympia 
in 1947. For two years during World 
War II, however, he took a leave of 
absence from Columbia to serve as 
chaplain in the United States Naval 
Reserve in Florida and in the Pa- 

Bishop Bayne has represented the 
Episcopal Church at the Centennial 
Congress of the Diocese of Christ- 
church, New Zealand (1950), at the 
World Council of Churches' Faith and 
Order Conferences at Lund (1952), 
Oberlin (1957) and Montreal (1963), 

Teacher Training 

St. Andrews Church in Greens- 
boro was the site of a teacher 
training conference on Saturday, 
October 1 with nearly 200 per- 
sons in attendance. 

Subjects discussed included the 
use in church study of arts, crafts, 
visual aids, Prayer Book, Bible 
and the Hymnal. Developing dis- 
cussion leadership was another 
subject on the program. 

David Howe is chairman of the 
Diocesan Department of Christian 
Education which planned the con- 


and at the Assembly of the World 
Council of Churches in New Delhi in 
1961. He was chairman of discussion 
groups at the Anglican Congress in 
1954 at Minneapolis, and of the Com- 
mittee on the Family at the 195S 
Lambeth Conference. He also has been 
involved in the Consultation on Church 
Union, annual unity talks between nine 
American churches. 

Bishop Bayne's books include: Gifts 
of the Spirit, The Optional God, Chris- 
tian Living, In the Sight of the Lord, \ 
Enter with Joy, Mindful of the Love,\

Salisbury, for their patronal festival; 
the Rt. Rev. Edward Crowther, bishop 
of Kimberley and Kuruman in South 
Africa, at St. Mary's, High Point. He 
was accompanied by Mrs. Crowther 
who spoke to the women of the parish

Diocese of Bethlehem, Pa., made a 

New Mission — Plans for new mis- 
sions are going on all about the 
Diocese. In High Point the congrega- 
tion of the new mission was commis- 
sioned and sent forth as a body on 
October 2 from the parent congrega- 
tion of St. Mary's Church. After 
receiving communion together the mem- 
bers of the new mission group com- 
posed of 100 or more adults and 100 
children left St. Mary's following their 
*iew minister and being led by their 
new crucifer. The choir cross which 
came with the St. Mary's Congrega- 
tion from the old downtown church led 
the new group as they launched out 
to start their new work. The Rev. 
Wallace Wolverton, who has been as- 
sociate with the Rev. Wm. Price, rec- 
tor of St. Mary's, went with the new 
mission congregation, as yet unnamed. 

Smith, Jr., of St. Stephen's Church at 
Winston-Salem, and chaplain to Epis- 
copal students, faculty and staff at 
Winston-Salem State College has re- 
cently completed 15 weeks of training 
at the Urban Training Center for Chris- 
tian Mission in Chicago, Illinois, under 
a Ford Foundation Fellowship. He 
describes this program as follows: "Our 
training began April 18, 1966 spending 
our first week on Skid Row, living, 
working, sleeping and eating like bums. 
This experience was concluded with a 
celebration of the Holy Communion in 
a Cafe with most of us in our skid row 

clothing. The first part of our training 
at the center, roughly eight weeks was 
largely academic, that is, there were 
frequent lectures by some of the best 
clergy and laymen on the urban scene. 
We then spent three weeks in our 
parishes yet under the supervision of 
the Center writing a situation analysis 
of the nature and flow of economic 
power in our respective cities. The 
third part of our training program con- 
cerned itself with a four-week intern- 
ship in four states, spending a week 
in each. Our first week was spent in 
Memphis, Tennessee, studying the 
Tennessee Voter's Council and the 
grass roots political organizations in 
10 or 12 surrounding counties. We 
were very interested to see Whites and 
Negroes forming a coalition to elect 
the best man. A week was spent in 
Louisiana studying the Southern Con- 
sumers Co-op Inc., in Lafayette, where 
both Negro and White members are 
able to borrow as much as $3000 from 
themselves. Our next week was spent 
in Columbus, Ohio, where we studied 
Dr. Milton Kotler's concept of Com- 
munity Foundations. Our last week 
was spent in Washington, D. C. meet- 
ing people in the Office of Economic 
Opportunity, the Commission on Civil 
Rights, the Housing Offices and in 
Fair Employment Practices Com mis- 

acre site fronting on Plaza Extension 
just beyond Barrington Drive at the 
city limits for a new Charlotte mission. 
The nucleus of the congregation will 
come from the Chapel of Hope which 
will terminate its activities on 17th 
Street. In Greensboro plans are going 
forward for a mission in the north- 
western residential section near Clax- 
ton School. It is hoped that it will get 
under way in the Spring. 

Mission Plans — In Charlotte the 
council of Episcopal churches there 
met on the last Sunday in September 
to arrange for purchase of a seven- 

Anniversaries — In contrast to the 
new missions several churches recently 
held anniversary celebrations. Again 
in Greensboro, St. Andrew's observed 
the 75th anniversary of its official and 
formal organization as a congregation 
of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese 
of North Carolina. Dated September 
17, 1891, the certificate of organiza- 
tion was signed by the Rt. Rev. Theo- 
dore B. Lyman, bishop. Bishop Fraser 

and a number of other clergy includ- 
ing two former rectors and two former 
curates were present for the service. 
The Rev. Carl Herman is rector, and 
the Rev. Samuel Moore, curate. In 
Thomasville, St. Paul's Church cele- 
brated its 25th anniversary on Septem- 
ber 11, with a service of thanksgiving 
and rededication. Laymen within the 
mission led the various parts of the 
service. The Rev. S. F. James Abbott, 
is deacon in charge at St. Paul's. But 
topping them all, was the Church of 
the Epiphany, Leaksville, who cele- 
brated its 122nd anniversary on Sep- 
tember 18. A special morning prayer 
service and picnic highlighted the cele- 
bration. The Rev. C. S. Cook, Jr., is

Clergy Changes — New in the Diocese 
is the Rev. Carlton O. Morales who 
has come to the Church of the Re- 
deemer, Greensboro, from St. Alban's 
Church, Paraiso, Panama Canal Zone. 
Leaving the Diocese are the Rev. 
David M. Bercaw from St. Mark's, 
Roxboro, Christ, Milton, and St. 
Luke's, Yanceyville, to St. John's, 
Hopewell, Va.; The Rev. Edwin E. 
Smith from St. Augustine's College, 
Raleigh to St. Cyprian's Parish, San 
Francisco, Cal. 

New DRE — Miss Gwendolyn Cur- 
rin has come to Christ Church, Ra- 
leigh as new director of Religious Edu- 
cation. For the past four years Miss 
Currin has been teaching at Page High 
School in Greensboro. She has worked 
at Kanuga and has just returned from 
Tanzania, where she worked with the 
Anglican Church. 

In the News — Several members of 
the congregation of St. Stephen's, Dur- 
ham, have been in the news lately. 
Named to a committee to back the ef- 
forts for a 15 million dollar hospital 
bond issue in Durham were Frank 
Kenan and Nello Teer, Jr. And in the 
national as well as local news was the 
familiar name of George McAfee who 
was enshrined in professional football's 
Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, his 
native state. He has made his home in 
Durham for the past 15 years and 
was the first representative from North 
Carolina to be named to the pro Hall 
of Fame. 

To Jamboree — Edward Sholar 
Powell, Jr., of St. Stephens, Oxford, 
has been selected as one of 28 boys 
from the Occoneechee Council to at- 
tend the World Scout Jamboree to be 
held next summer in Farragut State 
Park, Idaho. 

Awards Noted — Catching up still 
from summer non-publication of the 

Churchman we find we failed to note 
three boys from the Diocese who won 
awards at the 1966 commencement at 
Christchurch School in Virginia. Allan 
Gant, Jr., of Burlington, won the Bish- 
op's Prize for outstanding citizenship 
and Christian leadership. He is now at 
U.N.C., Chapel Hill. Philip Craige, 
formerly of Winston-Salem, now at the 
University of Virginia, won the award 
for greatest improvement during his 
senior year. Graduating first in his 
class at Christchurch, and now at 
Washington and Lee University, was 
John Motsinger, son of Mr. and Mrs. 
Eugene Motsinger of Roaring Gap. 
He also won the English and Sacred 
Studies Awards. 

Alms Basins — The Diocesan Altar 
Guild has on hand for use where 
needed two sets of brass alms basins. 
For further information please contact 
Mrs. P. B. Smith, 2712 Mayview Rd., 
Raleigh 27607. 

Supplies Needed — St. Mary's Church 
of High Point is launching a new mis- 
sion, according to the Rev. W. I. Wol- 
verton, Jr., assistant rector. "We are 
beginning with hardly any necessary 
church supplies," Mr. Wolverton 
writes. "We would appreciate hearing 
from any churches having vestments, 
prayer books, alms basins, cruets, altar 
cloths, etc. . . . which might be donated 
to the new mission." 

Treasurer's Report 

Editor's Note: Following is the report of Diocesan Treasurer George F. Bason

Spending By Diocese Is Discussed 

The Straight And Narrow . . . By Adkins 


Diocesan Director of Program 

Treasurers and wardens of all con- 
gregations of the Diocese have re- 
ceived the proposed 1967 budget upon 
which your Episcopal Maintenance As- 
sessment and Church Program Quota 
have been figured. 

While every reader of The 
Churchman cannot consult the pro- 
posed budget easily, there are certain 
facts which all of the people of the 
Diocese ought to know about the 
budget. Hence this article. 

For two years the director of pro- 
gram, the Rev. Charles Greene, along 
with the Finance Department, chaired 
by R. Mayne Albright, and the busi- 
ness manager, George Bason, have 
sought diligently to reduce the budget 
when such reductions could and should 
be made. Bishop Fraser has requested 
and backed this work, and excellent 
cooperation has been received from 
the departments and commissions of 
the Diocese. 

Last year over $9,000 was removed 
from the budget. The proposed 1967 
budget has nearly $19,000 removed. 
This reduction was not an arbitrary 
cut. It is the result of study, actual 
expenditure and experience. Our 
Bishop joins the diocesan staff and the 
Finance Department in insisting that 
the budget be as realistic as possible 
and that it represent good stewardship. 

What has happened in actual fi- 
nancial figures? Let's look first at the 
Episcopal Maintenance Budget. In this 
budget there are increases amounting 
to $2,379: Salaries, $1,779; telephone, 
$200; journal printing, $200; and con- 
tingent fund, $200. All office accounts 
have been transferred to this budget 
because separate accounts had caused 
unnecessary bookkeeping, compli- 
cated ordering, as well as staff time. 
This transfer amounts to $1,626. 

In the Episcopal Maintenance 
Budget reductions amounting to $3,- 
912 have been made. The largest 
single item, $3,087, comes from clos- 
ing the bookkeeper's office. Bookkeep- 
ing is now handled by the business 
manager's secretary, Mrs. Lillian 
Reynolds, whose future title will be, 
financial secretary. 

Other reductions are rather small, 
such as: Clergy convention expense 
$75; pre-convention reports $50; ex- 


amining chaplains expense $300; and, 
travel for synod delegation $400. 

There is not a line item for suf- 
fragan bishop. The budget has an 
item of $4,000 for Episcopal assis- 
tance. This item plus contingency 
should provide enough money for 
another bishop's office for one half 
of 1967, which is felt to be all that 
can be spent due to the time required 
for all the necessary details to elect 
and consecrate a bishop. 

The total of the Episcopal Main- 
tenance Budget is $127,760 (which 
includes office expense combination 
of $1,626). Last year it was $127,- 

What about increases? Last year 
the diocesan convention voted on cer- 
tain priorities which must be included 
in the budget. These priorities, total- 
ling $37,058, are: 

1. $8,208 — increase in quota to 
the National Episcopal Church's Pro- 

2. $700 — for secretarial work for 
the hospital chaplain in Chapel Hill 
and Durham; 

3. $2,500 — for office expense and 
secretary for the college chaplain at 

4. $6,200 — increase in support of 
St. Augustine's College; 

5. $10,000 — for the operation of 
The Penick Home; 

6. $6,000 — for new churches and 

missions; and 

7. $3,450 — for College Work, 

Other increases have been made by 
raising the salaries of diocesan staff 
members, mission clergy, college and 
hospital chaplains and others. This 
figure, which also includes rent, travel, 
pensions, etc., amounts to $8,228. 
Bishop Fraser backed by the Diocesan 
Council, called for a thorough study 
of all salaries paid through the trea

surer's office, and for an orderly, sys- 
tematic procedure for raises. The 
Finance Department completed this 
study last May after many months of 
hard work. 

Two other increases may be noted; 
namely, $764 to the program of our 
province and $698 toward the work of 
the North Carolina Council of 

These increases amount to $28,787, 
a large enough amount but smaller 
than last year. 

Significant reductions, totalling 
$14,935 have been made in the pro- 
posed program budget. These reduc- 
tions come as a result of looking care- 
fully at the work of each department, 
and are listed here according to de- 

$6,351 — College Work. We have 
a full-time chaplain in Greensboro 
now, and the college worker retires 
this year, reducing the budget by $3,- 
647. The department has also cut out 
some discretionary and program funds 
amounting to $2,704. 

$300 — Missions Department. Ex- 
pense of meeting. 

$500 — Department of Christian 
Education. Programs. 

$350 — Department of Christian 
Social Relations. Programs. 

$1,450 — Department of Promo- 
tion and Communication. For replace- 
ment of machinery necessary for mail- 
ing The Churchman. 

$25 — Department of Long Range 
Planning. Meetings. 

$6,059 — Contingent Fund. For 
several years little more than $1,000 
has been spent from a Contingent 
Fund of over $10,000. The Fund has 
been cut almost in half. It would have 
been cut more had the departments 
not been promised use of this Fund 
should the need arise during 1967 in 
view of the cuts made within the 

The total for the proposed 1967 
Program Budget is $564,437 as com- 
pared with $535,650 for last year. 

A large amount of the budget — 
$262,953 — goes to our institutions, 
quotas for national and provincial 
programs and special programs such as 
MRI and Companion Diocese and the 
printing of The Churchman. But this 
large amount represents our outreach 
to those people whom we never may 
see or know but are reached and 
helped nevertheless. 

When you add the cost of college 
work — $79,872 — and diocesan mis- 

Pike At Duke 

Bishop James A. Pike says 
Christianity in the United States 
could become defunct unless the 
church is revitalized soon. "The 
educated populace will not accept 
the old cliches, the old affirma- 
tions," Pike said in a sermon at 
the Duke University Chapel re- 
cently. "They want to know what 
they can do." 

He talked enthusiastically of the 
church becoming "a cause in the 
world" but said this renewal must 
take place in the next two years 
if Christianity is to survive. "Ser- 
mons should not only comfort the 
afflicted, but should also afflict the 
comfortable," Pike said. Later, 
he told newsmen that churches 
have been "holding up the wrong 
emblems. People are in it for 
security not for challenge. . . . 
The church is a nice social club." 

The controversial churchman 
said Christians must think cou- 
rageously and welcome a new 
neighbor — "no matter what his 
color, and even though your home 
gets stoned." 

"It's expensive to be a Chris- 
tian," he continued. "You may 
get it like Jesus got it. The Phar- 
isees disagreed with him on doc- 
trine, but what really nailed him 
was civil disobedience — when he 
upset the money changers' tables." 

Pike resigned as Episcopal 
bishop of California last May to 
join the staff of the Center for 
Study of Democratic Institutions 
at Santa Barbara, Calif. 

sions — $139,730 — to the above, 
you can see that our budget is pretty 
well spent. 

Comments and reactions to the pro- 
posed budget for 1967 are requested. 
Ask questions especially at convoca- 
tion meetings and the convention. This 
money comes from you. The Diocese 
wants to be a good steward. Unneces- 
sary expenditures must not be allowed. 
Work needing our attention must not 
go unheeded. Let us pray that God 
may bless and use our giving through 

The problems of alcohol and youth 
was explored Oct. 17-20 at a work- 
shop sponsored by the Middle Atlantic 
Institute for Alcohol Studies in co- 
operation with six church denomina- 
tions in Virginia. 

The workshop was held at Roslyn 
Conference Center in Richmond. 

The Rev. Charles W. Carnan, Jr., 
Newport News, Va., executive direc- 
tor of the institute, said that the meet- 
ing was designed especially for per- 
sons who are professionally working 
with people with alcohol problems. 

Starting with supper on Oct. 17, the 
three-day workshop featured talks and 
seminars centered on the teen-age al- 
cohol problem and parent-child rela- 

Among the leaders were: Dr. 
Ebbe C. Hoff, medical director, Vir- 
ginia State Division of Alcohol Studies 
and Rehabilitation, and president of 
the Middle Atlantic Institute; Dr. 
Ruth Fox, psychiatrio counselor and 
director of the National Council on 
Alchohol, New York; Dr. A. M. 
Schneidmuhl, director, Baltimore City 
Clinic on Alcoholism; and George L. 
Maddox, Ph.D., professor of sociology 
and author, Duke University. 

Also on the program was William B. 
Oglesby, Jr., D.D., Ph.D., professor of 
pastoral theology, Union Theological 
Seminary, Richmond, who talked on 
family counseling. 

Two counselors from the Virginia 
State Division of Alcohol Studies and 
Rehabilitation, Medical College of Vir- 
ginia, were on hand to help with the 
seminars: Mrs. George Ossman and 
Miss Elizabeth Robinson. 

The cooperating church bodies for 
this inter-faith, inter-racial conference 
include: the Episcopal Church, the 
Baptist Allied Bodies, the Roman 
Catholic Diocese of Richmond, the 
Methodist Church, the Presbyterian 
Church and the Baptist General As- 
sociation of Virginia. 

The Middle Atlantic Institute draws 
from Washington, Maryland, West 
Virginia and North Carolina as well as 

this channel of a diocesan budget, and 
thus His Kingdom on earth as well as 
in our particular 39 counties may grow 
and always be to His honor and glory.

Rowan Layman Sparks Chapel Drive 

(Editor's Note: The following 
article, written by Ned Cline, is 
reprinted from "The Salisbury 
Post." Francis Kepley is an active 
layman at St. Matthew's Episcopal 
Church in Rowan County. The 
Rev. Carey E. Sloan, III, is Lay- 
man Kepley's rector.

Kepley is about ready to get his 
prison chapel. 

It won't really be his, but he can 
justifiably lay claim to it. He has led 
a one-man construction committee for 
the past three years. 

A veteran laundry route man with 
a lot of time and desire for his Chris- 
tian faith, Kepley lacks approximately 
$2,200 having enough resources for 
the chapel. 

The structure the size of the cne 
to be built here would ordinarily cost 
$12,000. Thanks to Kepley's efforts 
and the cooperation of state prison of- 
ficials, the local chapel will be built 
for approximately $4,300. 

The state prison department will 
furnish labor and provide heating, wir- 
ing and landscaping. Kepley has ac- 
quired bricks, mortar, and most other 
supplies from local business firms. 

The chapel, to be built as soon as 
all the necessary money is available, 
will be the second for the state, ex- 
cept for the prison chapel at Central 
Prison in Raleigh. The Robeson Coun- 
ty Prison Unit has one which was con- 
structed approximately three years 

State prison officials last week gave 
the official approval for construction. 
Their only requirement is that all funds 
be on hand or pledged before construc- 
tion is started. 

"We hope to get started real soon," 
Kepley commented. 

The chapel will in all probability 
be named the Chapel of Hope. The 
name was chosen because hope was 
about all there was at one time. 

"It was a little like a dream," Kep- 
ley said. "I had thought of the idea 

for a long time and then I woke up 
one morning about 3 o'clock and told 
myself the structure could be built."

Kepley has played a major role in 
the Christian growth of the Rowan 
prison unit for seven years. An Epis- 
copalian, he first became interested 
through the Brotherhood of St. An- 
drews, an Episcopal organization 
which is dedicated to bringing people 
to Christ. It drew its name from the 
disciple Andrew who took his older 
brother, Peter, to Christ. 

It was more than seven years ago 
that Kepley and some friends attended 
a Brotherhood of St. Andrews meet- 
ing at Central Prison. They saw what 
the organization had done there and 

Grant Awarded For 
Twin City Project 

As a result of conferences with 
Bishop Thomas A. Fraser, Jr., Ed- 
ward E. Yaggy, Jr., of Chapel Hill, the 
directors of The Episcopal Church 
Foundation have made a substantial 
grant to the Diocese of North Carolina 
on the provision that matching amounts 
will be forthcoming from local sources 
to establish a research and training 
workshop in the Winston-Salem area. 

The program as outlined by the Rev. 
Richard N. Ottaway and representa- 
tives from business and industry in the 
area, will utilize the resources of Win- 
ston-Salem to design a program aimed 
to be of service to the clergyman in a 
parish in the rapidly emerging urban 
South. Laymen from industry, research 
facilities, business and other aspects of 
city life will teach the language of their 
own work to the clergy. 

The training will be in the hands of 
laymen who are professionally involved 
in training management. They will de- 
sign the program and form the teach- 
ing teams. The objective will be to help 
the local clergyman understand the dy- 
namics of his city. It is felt that if he 
understands the language and functions 
of the work of his parishioners, he will 
be better able to minister to them. It 
is hoped that the project can get under 
way during the current year.

The small group began their minis- 
try at the local prison shortly after 
the Raleigh gathering. After a while 
the group began to lose interest be- 
cause, according to Kepley, "it was 
rough going." But Kepley didn't give 

He stayed and found himself the 
lone carrier of the gospel to the prison 
on a regular basis. He visits the camp 
each Thursday night and two Sundays 
a month for worship services. 

Kepley's patience and dedication be- 
gan, to pay dividends. At one point 
he had a regular audience of more 
than 50 inmates. They met in the 
prison kitchen for awhile and then 
moved to a small recreation room. 

Just when the services were drawing 
their largest group of worshippers, the 
prison department transformed the 
unit from a youthful first offenders 
camp to one which now houses honor 
grade and work release inmates. 

Kepley lost his church-goers. But 
he started all over again and now has 
less than a dozen regular attenders 
but is gaining in number almost each 

The chapel idea came to Kepley 
during the height of his worship ser- 
vices before the youthful offenders 
were transferred to other camps. He 
met with prison officials who accepted 
the idea. He then began making the 
rounds of local business firms to se- 
cure supplies. 

He has the bricks, mortar, and lum- 
ber, most which has been donated. He 
also has approximately $1,000 in cash 
contributed by churches, clubs, and 

Contributions range from $5 to a 
$300 pledge from the Episcopal Mens 
Club of North Carolina. Local Luther- 
ans have been the most liberal givers 
with Salem Lutheran contributing 
$250, Organ Lutheran $212, the 
Lutheran Ministerial Association, $35, 
and Haven Lutheran $25. 

"We'll accept any gift," Kepley said. 
"This is a needed thing and I hope the 
people will see it." Gifts may be made 
to Kepley at his home on Rt. 6, Salis- 
bury or at Star Laundry. Major R. S.

The Churchman 

Bishop Hines Describes His Duties 

How does it feel to be presiding 
bishop after slightly more than a year 
and a half in the Church's most de- 
manding office? What does the Rt. 
Rev. John E. Hines think about some 
of the major issues facing the Episco- 
pal Church in 1966? How do those 
who work most closely with him re- 
spond to his leadership? 

The answers to all these questions 
and more are woven into a warm, in- 
cisive, highly readable word portrait 
by George Cornell, religion editor for 
the Associated Press, which appeared 
in the October and November issues of 
The Episcopalian. 

Entitled "The Shepherd from Sene- 
ca," Cornell's two-part article presents 
an intensely human portrait of the 
man who describes his office as "the 
lightning rod" of the churchwide 
household. Bishop Hines says of his 
office, "Here is where the shocks have 
to be absorbed without the supporting 
security of a close diocesan family." 
And then adds, "Gosh, it's a real privi- 

said he, too, hoped the public will re- 
spond to the need for the chapel. 

Blueprints and architectural draw- 
ings for the chapel have already been 
completed. Michael Newman, a Win- 
ston-Salem architect, drew the plans at 
no cost and submitted them for ap- 

The one-story structure will be ap- 
proximately 35 feet square and will 
seat up to 80 persons. It'll be a brick 
veneer with asphalt shingles on the 
roof and a tile floor. 

Maj. Lowe and Kepley both com- 
mented on the need for a chapel 
here. "A lot of these fellows have 
never been to church before. They 
are eager to learn," Kepley said. He 
admitted, however, that his job was 
easier when the first offenders were 
here instead of the "older and rougher" 
group at the camp now. 

The Rowan prison has a population 
of from 175 to 180 inmates. The per- 
centage of worship service attenders 
was high before the inmate transfer 
was made. "The percentage of church 
goers inside the prison was greater than 
the percentage outside," Maj. Lowe 

... Is Lightning Rod 

lege to be here." 

Cornell gives a lively, fast moving 
picture of a presiding bishop who in 
1 8 short months has visited about two- 
thirds of the Church's 87 dioceses 
across the country and taken five trips 
overseas to visit about half of the 
Church's 16 overseas missionary dis- 

Over 1,000 acolytes and adults 
gathered in the Duke Chapel on 
Saturday morning, October 22, to hear 
Bishop Fraser greet them and to 
praise and recognize the acolytes for 
their important leadership and par- 
ticipation in the worship of the Church. 

The Rev. Charles Greene, director 
of program, celebrated the Festival 
Communion, assisted by the Rev. Wil- 
liam Hethcock, the Rev. Bruce Shep- 
herd and other clergy from the Dur- 
ham area. 

Boys being boys means eating. So, 

Direct quotes from Bishop Hines on 
such subjects as extremists in and out 
of the Church, the death of God, and 
fear, combine to show a leader who 
knows where he is going, why, and 
how he is setting about leading the 
Church along with him. 

On extremists he says, "We need 
courage in this Church, but not fool- 
hardiness. We need reformers in this 
Church, but not insurrectionists. We 
need pioneers in this Church, but not 

On fear: "Fear is like arsenic. In 
small doses, it can be therapeutic. In 
large doses, it is lethal. Our fear of 
Communism can be therapeutic ... if 
it leads to the shoring up of our own 
basic freedoms, but such a fear can be 
paralyzing when it sows the seeds of 
suspicions and distrust through distor- 
tions and half-truths." 

On the "death of God:" "I don't 
go for this 'God is dead' gimmick. I 
appreciate people probing for what 
they feel they have to find and con- 
structively criticizing the Church, but 
not obscuring its rudiments." 

From reporting the PB's own seri- 
ous statements on major issues to Mrs. 
Hines' comments on her husband's ap- 
petite, Cornell has put together two 
articles that show "The Shepherd from 
Seneca" to be a real leader who is 
inspiring confidence not only among 
his fellow Episcopalians, but through- 
out all of twentieth century Christen- 

on to the Episcopal Student Center

the grounds and centers graciously 
opened to them by the Presbyterians, 
Methodists and Baptists. Mrs. Isaac 
Manning and 19 other Durham women

son got a box of "finger lickin' good" 
chicken and a coke.

copalians for the Duke-State game

One Here In Diocese: Expanded Use 

Episcopal Church Boasts Of 8 Of Kanuga 
Higher Learning Institutions Is Projected 

Bard . . . Hobart . . . Kenyon . . . 
St. Augustine's ... St. Paul's . . . 
Shimer . . . Trinity . . . The Uni- 
versity of the South. 

These names should evoke a response 
for each Episcopalian as does Swarth- 
more for the Quaker; S. M. U. for the 
Methodist or Notre Dame for the Ro- 
man Catholic. They are the eight in- 
stitutions of higher learning related to 
the Episcopal Church. 

The truth is, however, that these 
names are not familiar to many Episco- 
palians. Perhaps the reason is that they 
are small. Trinity, in Hartford, Conn., 
with 1,100 students is the largest. 
Shimer, in Mount Carroll, 111., has only 
480 students and is the smallest. 

As Presiding Bishop Hines points 
out, "They are small enough to foster 
real academic discipline and indepen- 
dent study. They all have liberal arts 
programs which concentrate on educat- 
ing the whole person. And they all in- 
sist on maintaining dialogue between 
the Church and the contemporary in- 
tellectual community." 

As a group, these eight colleges of- 
fer education of the highest quality. 
Both Kenyon, in Gambier, O., and 
the University of the South, Sewanee, 
Tenn., are among the top 10 colleges 
in the U. S. in Woodrow Wilson Fel- 
lowships this year. 

And you must have something go- 
ing for you when the combined student 
body, less than two-thirds of one per 
cent of the national total, provides the 
Episcopal Church with 22 per cent of 
all living clergy and one-quarter of all 

Support has come from the 1964 
General Convention in St. Louis, and 
from Presiding Bishop Hines and his 
two predecessors, Bishop Sherrill and 
Bishop Lichtenberger. It is now being 
sought from the man in the pew by the 
eight members of Association of Epis- 
copal Colleges. 

The AEC estimates that only one 
per cent of individual Episcopalians 



give to their colleges. Parishes do a little 
better, with 10 per cent contributing. 
Most of this support is to the Uni- 
versity of the South, however, which is 
owned by 21 southern dioceses. 

As a group, the eight colleges have 
enrollment of slightly more than 6,000 
students, nearly one-quarter of them 
receiving scholarships and a few less 
participating in loan programs. These 
scholarships amount to more than one 
million dollars each year. Five hundred 
and twenty three teachers are employed, 
with half of these faculty members 
holding Ph.D. degrees. The faculty- 
student ratio is small, assuring an em- 
phasis on the individual, and varies 
from 1:10 to 1:17. 

Here are brief details on the eight 

Bard College, founded in 1860, is 
located on a 525-acre campus 100 miles 
north of New York City, at Annandale- 
on-Hudson. Classes follow the seminar 
form and stress the exchange of ideas 
between students and faculty. Indepen- 
dent projects are emphasized. 

Hobart College, oldest of the eight 
Episcopal institutions, was founded in 
1822 and is located in Geneva, New 
York. Offering B.A. and B.S. degrees, 
the M.A. degree in education and a 
five-year combined program with Co- 
lumbia University leading to the Bache- 
lor of Science in engineering, Hobart 
enrolls 1,000 men. A cognate college, 
William Smith, serves 350 women. 

Kenyon College, located in Gam- 
bier, O., was founded in 1824 by the 
Rt. Rev. Philander Chase, first Epis- 
copal Bishop of Ohio. With about 750 
students, Kenyon retains the emphasis 
on the individual by small classes, in- 
dependent study and honors work. The 
College also publishes the internation- 
ally known literary quarterly, The Ken- 
yon Review. 

St. Augustine's College serves 800 
students and is located in Raleigh. 
Founded in 1867, the College boasts a 
distinctive honors program, and a sci- 
ence training program for high-ability 
secondary school students. 

St. Paul's College, located in Law- 
renceville, Va., was founded in 1888 
as an industrial school and training in-

Kanuga with the means and facilities 
for a year-round program. 

The curriculum will be expanded 
to meet the pressing needs of business 
and industry through seminars de-

lems in a Christian context. The new 
program will also expand on parish 
and diocesan workshops, offer leader-

other problem areas, when and as, de- 

Arrington stated that a questionnaire 
sent to a cross section of business and

statements regarding the effectiveness 
of Kanuga's programs in the past and 
strongly urging the full development 
of Kanuga in the future.

Shimer College, in Mount Carroll, 
111., was founded in 1853 as a seminary 
and became a four-year liberal arts 
college in 1950. Among Shimer's par-

Writer Offers Inside Look At 
Vade Mecum Family Conference 

Special to The Churchman 

Was this really Vade Mecum? Of 
course the conference center is ac- 
customed to the sounds of children's 
voices, but some of these children still 
had bottles and diapers. More than 
half were pre-schoolers, with the others 
ranging from first grade through high 

Mom and Dad were there too, be- 
cause it was the second family con- 
ference that has been held from Fri- 
day night through Monday noon of the 
Labor Day weekend. 

What is a family conference? Why 
have one? This family conference was 
conceived to give family groups a 
chance to spend some time together 
away from some of the pressures they 
face each day. 

Some of this time was spent in dis- 
cussion groups, both those which were 
planned and those which arose spon- 
taneously. Children had classes too, 
and the high point of the weekend for 
one seven-year-old boy, judging from 
his comments, was not the swimming 
or the horseshoes or even the meals, 
much as he liked all of those activities. 

a liberal arts college for men in Hart- 
ford, Conn. Its flexible academic cur- 
riculum, is part of a total sense of com- 
munity, moral, social and physical, as 
well as intellectual. 

The University of the South, Se- 
wanee, Tenn., is the largest educational 
investment of the Episcopal Church in 
the United States, owned by 21 south-

theology, a college of arts and sciences 
and a military prep school.

It was the discovery that he could 
really read the Bible, all by himself. 
"I didn't know all the words," this 
second grader told his mother, "but I 
could still read it." 

There was Holy Communion each 
morning, and Evening Prayer at the 
end of the day, but a great deal of 
time was purposely left free for fam- 
ilies to discover and enjoy one another. 

Dad and the children discover 
archery, a new interest they can share. 
Mother and daughter hunt wildflow- 
ers together and try to name them 
from a guide book. A volunteer teen- 
age baby sitter stays with the youngest 
member of the family during her nap 
so Mother and Dad can both join 
the older children for some fun, an 
occasion which seems to come too sel- 
dom at home. 

Are the needs for family recreation 
and leisure so important that the 
church should become involved? The 
creative use of leisure has been cited 
as one of the major concerns of our 
decade. One observer, who has at- 
tended both conferences, noted that a 
great many participants the first year 
seemed at such a loss as to what to do 
with themselves when they were con- 
fronted with free time. It was not until 
after the first 24 hours had passed 
that they seemed able to relax and 
enjoy themselves. 

This appeared to be less the case the 
second year, possibly because several 
families were repeaters and had 
learned something from their first ex- 
perience. Most of us who have at- 
tended these first two family confer- 
ences at Vade Mecum feel that they 
have fulfilled a need in our lives.

. . . Congregation Leaving After Service 

. Bishop Fraser, Mr. Herman 

St. Andrew's Episcopal Church at 
Greensboro observed its 75th anniver- 
sary recently with consecration of the 
church by Bishop Fraser. The Rev. 
Carl F. Herman is rector of St. An- 
drew's and the curate is the Rev. 
Samuel M. Moore. 

Payments have been completed on 
the $225,000 present church structure 
which was built in 1957. The existing 
chapel and parish house were erected 
in 1949. Estimated value of the total 
church property . . . including parking 
lot . . . is $500,000. 

St. Andrew's Church began as a 
Sunday School class in a private home 
in South Greensboro in 1887. On Sep- 
tember 17, 1891, Bishop Theodore B. 
Lyman formally organized St. An- 
drew's as a mission of the Diocese of 


North Carolina. The first church build- 
ing was completed and opened for 
divine services at the northeast corner 
of East Lee and Arlington streets on 
the 19th of April, 1893. This building 
was consecrated on the 20th of May, 
1900, by the Rt. Rev. Joseph Blount 
Cheshire, then the bishop of the 
Diocese of North Carolina. There were 
95 communicants. 

In October, 1908, in view of the 
city's growth northward and westward, 
lots were purchased at the corner of 
Ashe and Sycamore streets and plans 
initiated with a view of relocating the 
Church. In 1912 Bishop Cheshire gave 
notice of his approval of the moving 
of the church building to the Syca- 
more Street location, with permission 
for the sale of the lot at Arlington 
and Lee streets. The church building 
was torn down, the material moved to 
the new location, and the building re- 
erected almost exactly as it had been 
originally. The first service in the re- 

built structure was held on April 27, 
1913, and the building was again con- 
secrated on May 3, 1914. The com- 
municant membership of the parish 
barely held its own during this tran- 
sition period. Following the relocation, 
growth was slow but steady, and the 
parish rendered service to the com- 
munity, though not without a consider- 
able struggle on many occasions. 

In 1941, the city's growth continuing 
to be northward and westward and 
the old wooden church building being 
beyond the state of permanent repair, 
the first lots of the present site were 
purchased and plans initiated to move 
the parish to Sunset Hills. It was not 
until 1949, however, that the parish 
house was completed. The communi- 
cant membership had increased from 
225 in 1940 to 270 at the time of this 
relocation. The church school enroll- 
ment was less than 200.

An important aspect of the ministry 
and program of St. Andrew's Church 
during its 75-year history in Greens- 
boro has been in the area of College 
Work. Prior to the turn of the cen- 
tury a program was begun by this 
congregation for the students of what 
was then the State Normal School 
(now UNC-G). On May 19, 1900, 
at the request of the rector, wardens 
and vestry of St. Andrew's, St. Mary's 
Memorial Chapel was consecrated by 
Bishop Cheshire. Services were held 
each Sunday afternoon during the 
school term by the rector of St. An- 

For some years following the end of 
World War I, St. Mary's Memorial 
Chapel was not used. In the very late 
'20s, again at the suggestion and re- 
quest of the rector and people of St. 
Andrew's, the aforesaid chapel was 
deconsecrated and the building slightly 
remodeled and converted into St. 
Mary's House, The Episcopal Student 
Center, which purpose and function it 
still serves. 

St. Andrew's Church has always 
been the site or place where the Epis-

day services each month are conducted 
in the Chapel by the Rev. James R. 

Record Support Seen This Fall 
For Worldwide Bible Reading 

Worldwide Bible Reading, the an- 
nual program sponsored by the Ameri- 
can Bible Society, this fall is expected 
to have the widest support from secu- 
lar organizations in its 23-year his- 
tory, according to Everett Smith, the 
society president. 

Merchants will join ministers again 
in urging widespread public participa- 
tion throughout the United States. Last 
year trade journals, daily and weekly 
newspapers, consumer magazines and 
company house organs, with an 83 
million plus circulation printed the se- 
lections and offered the bookmark. 
Radio and television stations made 
spot announcements. Retail merchants 
and community service organizations 
from the prairies to the coasts dis- 
tributed the bookmarks in grocery bags 
and from house to house. People in 
restaurants — in hotels — in prisons 
.were offered the bookmarks. 

Worldwide Bible Reading is a pro- 
gram in which people all over the 
world join in reading the same pre- 
selected portion of the Bible. Twenty 
million persons are expected this year 
to be united in this close spiritual bond. 
The program began during World War 

II when a lonely Marine on Guadal- 
canal wrote his family asking them to 
join him in reading the same Bible 
selections each day. His mother tele- 
phoned the society to request a list of 
readings. The society was inspired to 
share the idea and it soon grew into a 
program of world-wide proportions. 

The program begins in the U.S.A. on 
Thanksgiving, but reaches its high 
point on Christmas Eve when millions 
of people in many lands join in the 
reading of the Christmas Story. All 
persons are urged to read from the 
version or translation of the Bible they 

The society provides without charge 
free single copies of bookmarks which 
list the readings and a free booklet 
containing the Christmas Story. The I 
Christmas booklet this year will be I 
taken from the "Today's English Ver- 
sion," a new translation in language 
as clear and current as the daily news- 
papers, the first in English ever under- 
taken by the society in its 150-year 
history. For your free copies, write

Statement On Bishop Pike 

Editor's Note: Following is a statement regarding Bishop James Pike, 
formerly of the Diocese of California. The statement was approved by the 
House of Bishops at the recent Wheeling, West Virginia, meeting. The vote 
for approval was 104 to 35. The statement was prepared and unanimously 
recommended to the House of Bishops by a special committee headed by 
the Rt. Rev. Angus Dun, retired bishop of Washington, D. C. 

The fact has been widely publicized that a number of Bishops of the Episco- 
pal Church have been prepared to initiate a formal trial of Bishop James A. 
Pike. Those who contemplated this action did so because they were deeply 
troubled by certain utterances of Bishop Pike which they believed to be contrary 
to the clear teaching of this Church on basic aspects of our faith. 

When all of our Bishops were notified of this contemplated action, many 
were convinced that it should not be taken without an opportunity for corporate 
consideration by the House of Bishops. The action was postponed; and the 
meeting in which we are now engaged has given an opportunity for formal and 
informal consultation on the part of those of us present. 

This Statement, adopted by a majority of the House of Bishops, seeks to 
embody briefly the conclusions we have reached. 

It is our opinion that this proposed trial would not solve the problem pre- 
sented to the Church by this minister, but in fact would be detrimental to the 
Church's mission and witness. 

This judgment does not as such represent any legal opinion on our part for 
or against any charges which might be brought against Bishop Pike. 

Many considerations have led us to this conclusion. We recognize that ideas 
and beliefs cannot be constrained by laws and penalties. This "heresy trial" 
would be widely viewed as a "throw-back" to centuries when the law, in Church 
and State, sought to repress and penalize unacceptable opinions. It would spread 
abroad a "repressive image" of the Church, and suggest to many that we are 
more concerned with traditional propositions about God than with faith as the 
response of the whole man to God. The language and the mysteries of the 
Christian faith are inescapably hardened when dealt with in legal terms. We be- 
lieve that our Church is quite capable of carrying the strains of free inquiry 
and of responsible, and even irresponsible attempts to restate great articles of 
faith in ways that would speak in positive and kindling terms to men of our 
own time. And we are confident that the great majority of our clergy and people 
are gratefully loyal to our good inheritance in a Church catholic, evangelical 
and open. 

Having taken this position regarding a trial, nevertheless, we feel bound to 
reject the tone and manner of much that Bishop Pike has said as being offensive 
and highly disturbing within the communion and fellowship of the Church. And 
we would disassociate ourselves from many of his utterances as being irrespon 
sible on the part of one holding the office and trust that he shares with us. 

His writing and speaking on profound realities with which Christian faith and 
worship are concerned and too often marred by caricatures of treasured symbols 
and at the worst, by cheap vulgarizations of great expressions of faith. 

We are more deeply concerned with the irresponsibility revealed in many of 
his utterances. He has certainly spoken in a disparaging way of the Trinity, for 
example, and suggested that a conceptualized doctrine of the Trinity is a "heavy 
piece of luggage," of which the Church might well be relieved. Yet he knows 
well that a Triune apprehension of the mystery of God's being and action is 
woven into the whole fabric of the creeds and prayers and hymnody of our 
Episcopal Church, as it is into the vows of loyalty taken by our clergy at their 
ordination. It is explicit in our membership in the World Council of Churches 
and in our consultations on Church union with other major Churches. To 
dissect it out of the stuff of our shared life in Christ would indeed be a radical 
operation, to suggest such surgery is irresponsible. 

Mature and competent theologians have always known that the language of 
profound faith presents special problems. Silence is often more expressive of "the 
knowledge of God" than facile speaking. But men must seek to find words 
symbols, metaphors and parables to express their faith if they are to communi-

Bishop's Request For Suffragan OK'd 
By Overflow Turnout At Convention 

Churchman Editorial Board 

Permission to elect a suffragan 
bishop for the Diocese was given with 
an overwhelming vote of assent by 
delegates to a special convention in 
Burlington on November 12. The re- 
sounding chorus of "ayes" — with one 
lone "nay" — came in response to a 
resolution offered by Joseph Cheshire, 

Jr., of Raleigh, president of the Stand- 
ing Committee, requesting election of 
a suffragan at the 1967 convention. 

Bishop Fraser's request for this form 
of Episcopal assistance was made in 
his address to the nearly 400 lay and 
clerical delegates who filled the pews, 
choir stalls, the aisles, and overflowed 
into the adjoining halls of the Church 
of the Holy Comforter on that rainy 

Saturday morning. The new suffragan 
will not be subject to automatic suc- 
cession to the office of diocesan as 
would a coadjutor. 

In his address to the convention 
Bishop Fraser spoke of the pressures 
of his office and of his desire to be a 
bishop "who has time to listen, time 
to pray, time to reflect, so that he can 
in a small measure stay above the bat- 
tle, and therefore lead with more con- 
fidence and vision than I have been 
able this past year." 

"The suffragan," he continued, 
"would be responsible for the routine 
operation of the Diocese, or to be 
more specific — the officer in charge 
of the Church's program as outlined 
in the budget." 

"The type of man needed for this of- 
fice," he went on, "from my experi- 
ence, must be one who can stand the 
rigorous demands of travel, argument, 
theological and liturgical confusion, the 
stress and strain of spiritual life — 
and come out smiling." Then he added; 
"And, an almost impossible require- 
ment — he will have to be able to 
live with me." 

Time for the election has been set 
for February 1, the second day of the 
1967 Diocesan Convention. The con- 
vention will be held at St. Paul's, Win- 
ston-Salem, beginning January 31, and 
will have this as its first and possibly 
only order of business on that second 
day. Between now and then approval 
for the election must come from a ma- 
jority of all American Episcopal 
Church bishops having jurisdiction and 
the 78 diocesan standing committees 
within the national church. Following 
election, the bishop-elect must be ap- 
proved by a majority of the dioceses 
and bishops of the national church be- 
fore his consecration. 

Plans for naming the suffragan be- 
gan at the convention with permission 
given the Bishop to appoint a com- 
mittee to receive names for nomina- 
tion and to assemble data regarding 
them. This action came on motion of 
the Rev. John A. Gray of St. Timo- 
thy's, Wilson, following the Bishop's 
request that the delegates state their 
preference for such a committee or for 
a wide-open convention with no prior 
nominations. Mr. Gray's resolution also 

cate and share it. The language of faith is frequently open to unimaginative and 
literalistic interpretations. Ancient terms and formulas may cease to speak to 
men in later times. There is constant need for reinterpretation and recasting, 
especially in a time of such rapid intellectual and social change as ours. For this 
task there must be freedom, responsible freedom. But this calls for sensitive 
pastoral care and for patient and reverent penetration into what hallowed word- 
forms have been trying to say. We find too little of this pastoral concern and 
of this patient and reverent penetration in many of Bishop Pike's utterances on 
the most sensitive themes. 

At the last meeting of this House, Bishop Pike affirmed his loyalty to the 
Doctrine, Discipline, and Worship of this Church and expressed his concern 
for the episcopal brotherhood he shares with us. We welcomed that assurance 
and the hope it gave that the dynamic leadership with which he is endowed 
might be used in such a way as to strengthen our corporate life and witness. 
Nothing so troubles us now as the sense shared by most of us that this hope was 

This is a hard thing to say — perhaps as hard as what Bishop Pike has said 
of beliefs treasured in the Church in whose service he and we have been joined 
and honored. Doubtless he would declare that he intended "to speak the truth 
] in love." We would say the same — indeed we would acknowledge gratefully and 
I sincerely that there has been so much in his ministry among us in which we 
\\ rejoice. 

Finally, we do not think his often obscure and contradictory utterances war- 
ij rant the time and the work and the wounds of a trial. The Church has more 
i\ important things to get on with.

provided that the committee assemble 
the collected data, both biographical 
and information as to why the nomi- 
nator believes him to be worthy to 
serve as suffragan. This information is 
then to be assembled and given in 
printed form to the delegates for study 
prior to the convention in order that 
they might be able to vote with better 

The convention later passed Mr. 
Gray's amendment to his resolution 
which added the provision that the 
committee also be allowed to deter- 
mine whether a man would permit his 
name to be placed in nomination. 

Upon motion of Robert C. Howison 
of Christ Church, Raleigh, it was di- 
rected that only delegates to the 1967 
Diocesan Convention may submit 
names to this committee. Bishop Fraser 
pointed out that while the committee 
would meet for the purpose of receiv- 
ing names for nomination, that no 
actual nominations could be made un- 
til the convention. 

Last suffragan bishop of the Diocese 
was Henry B. Delany. He served from 
1918 to 1928 under Bishop Joseph B. 

Bishop Fraser served as coadjutor 
under Bishop Richard H. Baker for 

The purpose of this special conven- 
tion is to request episcopal assistance, 
specifically a suffragan bishop. 

Christian saints often speak of the 
dark night of the soul, or the great 
abyss. Not as a saint, but as a bishop, 
I have especially in the past 16 months 
known many dark nights of the soul 
— nights when I have felt wholly 
inadequate to serve as your bishop. 
The pressures have been to be worldly 
wise and astute in the strategies of 
the world, to such an extent that the 
role of the chief pastor, father in 
god, the shepherd of the sheep has 
been all but obliterated. I have been 
most unhappy with this role, for I 
know of the needs of the clergy and 
the laity for a bishop who has time 
to listen, time to pray, time to reflect, 
so that he can in a small measure 
stay above the battle, and therefore 
lead with more confidence and vision 
than I have been able this past year. 
I have shared as much responsibility 
with staff members and department 
heads as I can. Another bishop seems 
to be necessary. 

The Diocese of North Carolina has 

five years and became diocesan when 
Bishop Baker retired last summer. 

become a big diocese, and continues 
to grow. We have at present almost 
140 clergy, two Church Army work- 
ers, 124 parishes and missions. From 
July, 1965, to July, 1966, with these 
clergy and in these parishes and mis- 
sions, I preached 115 times, conducted 
83 confirmation services, celebrated 
the Holy Communion 94 times, and 
met with 52 vestries. This does not 
include burial offices, dedications, 
consecrations, and ordination services. 
In my office in Raleigh, I kept 355 
appointments. This does not include 
the appointments outside of the of- 
fice while visiting in convocations or 
any other out-of-office meetings. All 
the other vital statistics of the size and 
growth of the Diocese can easily be 
found in the journal. In brief, they 
all point to a need for new work, 
creative thinking, a greater need to 
witness in our community, state and 
national church — the need for some- 
one to stay above the battle and assist 
in long range planning. 

The deans of the convocations, and 
other clergy have asked me to give a 
job description. This will necessarily 
be ideal and largely dependent upon 
the man you elect. 

The suffragan would be responsible 
for the routine operation of the 
Diocese, or to be more specific — the 
officer in charge of the Church's pro- 
gram as outlined in the budget. The 
director of program and assistant di- 
rector of program would work under 
his supervision. The business manager 
would assist the suffragan in his duties. 
All department chairmen would re- 
port to him and work with him. The 
suffragan would work with me and 
report to me. He would be number two 
man on the diocesan staff, and would 
be included in all staff meetings and 
direct the staff and the Diocese in my 
absence. I will be responsible for his 
errors, if there are any, and his suc- 
cesses will be his own. I will continue 
the area visitations. However, there 
will only be one visitation in each 
convocation during the year. The suf- 
fragan will make Sunday visitations as 
directed by my office and be avail- 
able for extra services, as well as 
confirmation services at the Diocesan 

The type of man needed for this 
office, from my experience, must be 
one who can stand the rigorous de-

Here's Committee Appointed 
To Receive Suffragan Names 

Cheshire Resolution 

Following is the resolution offered 
at the Burlington Convention by Joseph 
B. Cheshire, secretary of the Standing 

"Whereas The Right Reverend 
Thomas Augustus Fraser, Bishop 
of the Diocese, has requested that 
a Suffragan Bishop be elected by 
and for the Diocese of North 
Carolina because of and on the 
ground of extent of Diocesan 
work, and whereas he has ob- 
tained the approval of said request 
from the Presiding Bishop and the 
Bishops of the Fourth Province; 

"Now, therefore, be it resolved 
by the Convention of the Diocese 
of North Carolina, in a special 
Convention duly assembled at the 
Church of the Holy Comforter, 
Burlington, on November 12, 
1966, with a quorum present and 
voting, that the Convention elect 
a Suffragan Bishop for the Diocese 
because of and on the ground of 
extent of Diocesan work, and that 
the Standing Committee is hereby 
directed to take the necessary 
canonical steps to secure the 
necessary consents thereto of the 
several Bishops having jurisdiction 
in the United States, and of the 
various Standing Committees of 
the Church." 

to be able to live with me. 

I do not believe that the age of this 
man is a determining factor. It is much 
more important that he can carry out 
decisions that have been made and 
that he can make decisions and as- 
sume responsibility for them. He must 
live and think in the terms of the 
20th Century. 

There are some things in this job 
description that will be adjusted, de- 
pending on the man elected. The Di- 
ocesan, however, does not intend to 
relinquish the supervision of person- 
nel — nor the fact that he is the 
final decision and policy maker. Ec- 
clesiastical authority as set forth in the 
canons can only reside in the Di- 

At the special convention in Bur- 
lington a resolution was passed asking 
Bishop Fraser to appoint a committee 
whose responsibilities would be (1) to 
receive nominations, (2) to receive 
nominations only from delegates to the 
next convention, (3) to determine if 
the person nominated would permit his 
name to be placed in nomination and 
(4) to assemble this material and make 
it available to the delegates to the con- 
vention at as early a time as the com- 
mittee should deem possible. 

The members of the committee are: 

D. Edward Hudgins, Chairman, 

The Rev. James D. Beckwith, St. 
Michael's Church, Raleigh. 

The Rev. Albert S. Hoag, St. Mar- 
tin's Church, Charlotte. 

The Rev. Sidney S. Holt, St. 
Thomas' Church, Sanford.

Thomas J. Pearsall, Rocky Mount.

Gap; and 

Mrs. W. H. R. Jackson, Raleigh. 

ocesan or the Standing Committee. 
However, the suffragan will be in- 
cluded in decision making and the 
sharing of responsibility wherever 
possible, for it is conceivable that some- 
day he might be considered as coad- 
jutor or diocesan. 

After the past 16 months as Di- 
ocesan, it seems to me that I can best 
serve the Diocese by being available, 
being out in the Diocese with time to 
meet, reflect, witness, and serve. Some- 
one must stand off and take an ob- 
jective look at what we are doing, 
why we are doing it, and lead in the 
evangelism and planning for the fu- 

If this Convention should approve 
my request for a suffragan bishop and 
we receive the consent of the House 
of Bishops and Standing Committees 
of the Church, the second day of our 
Diocesan Convention, February 1, will 
have as its first order of business the 
election of a suffragan bishop for the 
Diocese of North Carolina. 

Baker In Hospital 

The Rt. Rev. Richard H. 
Baker, who retired last summer as 
bishop of the Diocese of North 
Carolina, is reported "doing 
beautifully" after undergoing sur- 
gery at a Baltimore hospital. 

Bishop Baker was expected to 
be a patient at Church Home 
Hospital at North Broadway

The Tar Heel DioSCENE 

TAR HEEL VISITOR — One of the top figures in the Episcopal Church visited the Diocese in November and received a 
$5,000 gift from North Carolina for overseas assistance to the Diocese of Hong Kong. The visitor was Bishop Stephen F. 
Bayne, vice-president of the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church in the United States. Bishop (center above) 
Bayne until recently served as the first world-wide executive officer of the Anglican Communion. His visit took him to 
parishes in Raleigh, Greensboro, Rocky Mount and Charlotte. The $5,000 gift for church work in Hong Kong was pre- 
sented by the Rt. Rev. Thomas A. Fraser (right) bishop o the Diocese of North Carolina. During his stop in Raleigh, 
Bishop Bayne announced the appointment of the Rev. L. Bartine Sherman of Durham (left) as official representative of 
the national church to the forthcoming consecration of the Rev. Gilbert Baker as bishop of Hong Kong. Mr. Sherman is 
rector of St. Philip's Church in Durham and serves as dean of the Diocese's Central Convocation. See "New Bishop"

ton, Mrs. Claud Hart and Mrs. Tom 
Rice. The October exhibit was a group 
of fingerpaintings by the artist Ruth 
Faison Shaw of Chapel Hill. Novem- 
ber featured thirty recent prints by 
North Carolina artists, entitled "North 
Carolina Printmakers," and was as- 
sembled by the N. C. Museum of 
Art. December plans are for paintings 
by parishoners of St. Philip's, Durham;

Proposed Uniting 

. . . Meeting Held At Durham 

Diocesan Ecumenical Chairman 

The Consultation on Church Union 
was the topic of a one-day conference 
held on Tuesday, October 11, at the 
Jack Tar Hotel in Durham. "COCU" 
is the name given to conversations that 
have been going on in recent years 
between several churches which are 
seeking a united and uniting church — 
truly catholic, truly evangelical, and 
truly reformed." 

At the present time there are nine 
denominations officially participating in 
the conversations: The Episcopal 
Church, the United Presbyterian 
Church in the U.S.A., the Evangelical 
United Brethren, the Methodist Church, 
the United Church of Christ, the Chris- 
tian Church (Disciples of Christ), the 
African Methodist Episcopal Church, 
the Presbyterian Church in the U.S., 
and the African Methodist Episcopal 
Zion Church. 

The Durham Conference was spon- 
sored by the Episcopal Diocese of 
North Carolina. Nearly 250 persons 
attended the conference . . . among 
them, special observers from the Ro- 
man Catholic, Baptist, and Moravian 

The keynote speaker for the Durham 
Conference was the Rev. Albert T. 
Mollegen, who is professor of New 
Testament and Christian Ethics at the 
Virginia Theological Seminary and also 
a member of the nine member Episco- 
pal delegation to the consultation. 

Conference On 
Of Churches 

Following are some excerpts from Dr. 
Mollegen's address: 

On Why Church Unity?: 

". . . it was the prayer of the Lord 
himself that we all would be one." 

"... a united church does not mean 
a uniform church. ..." 

". . . we need a united witness to 
face the rising tide of secularism, hu- 
manism, and communism. . . ." 

". . . one of the greatest powers that 
moves us toward union is the break- 
through in biblical scholarship. . . ." 

Where Are We Now In Church 

". . . the representatives (of COCU) 
have decided on the authority of the 
Word in Scripture, the sacraments of 
Baptism and the Holy Communion, 
the two ancient creeds, and the minis- 
try of the church as to bishops, clergy, 
and laity. . . ." 

"... these agreements are not a vic- 
tory for any one denomination ... by 
living together and understanding each 
other, we shall mutually penetrate each 
other — osmosis works both ways — and 
come into a common pool without 
watering down anyone's communion, 
but enriching it. . . ." 

On How Far Is Church Unity?: 

". . . it will take from 30 to 100 
years before churches now interested in 
union can perfect a new united 
church. . . ." 

"... I don't want it to go too 
fast. ..." 

"... the ultimate plan of structure 
necessary for union is yet to be written, 
and after it is written, it must be rati- 
fied by each participating denomina- 
tion. . . ." 

On the Interim Period: 

". . . some interim steps will be 
necessary ... a service could be held 
for the unity of the ministry, whereby 
ministers of the several denominations 
would be equal and thus subject to call 
by all participating churches ... a co- 
ordinating council could be formed 
which would direct opening new mis- 
sionary areas at home and abroad. . . ."

Diocese Sponsors Acolyte Festival 

i / 

BOYS, BOYS EVERYWHERE— More than a thousand acolytes assembled in Duke Chapel Saturday morning, Octo- 
ber 22, to hear Bishop Thomas A. Fraser discuss the importance of their participation in the worship of the church. The 
youngsters were joined by their adult leaders in a Festival Communion which was conducted by the Rev. Charles R. 
Greene, director of program for the Diocese. The Episcopal Church Center was the site of a picnic lunch served by 
Durham churchwomen under the leadership of Mrs. Issac Manning. Afterwards, the crowd attended the Duke-State 
football game. These photos by Mrs. Margaret Darst Smith of the Churchman Editorial Board and by Whitley-Strawbridge

Panamas Bishop Heber Good en 
Christ Church, Raleigh Visitor 

Rector, Christ Church, Raleigh 

In a graphic illustration of Mutual 
Responsibility and Interdependence, 
Bishop Heber Gooden of Panama con- 
firmed a special class of four adults 
and received a gift of $300 from the 
Sunday School at Christ Church, Ra- 

leigh, on Sunday, October 16. 

Bishop Gooden, on his way to the 
House of Bishops meeting in West Vir- 
ginia, paid a visit to Christ Church 
that was organized as a visitation. He 
preached at the Family Service, where 
he was presented with the gift by Miss 
Blanche Williamson, daughter of Mr. 


The Churchman 

and Mrs. B. Robert Williamson. This 
gift was earmarked for the building 
program of St. Christopher's Church 
in Rio Abajo. At this same service 
the senior warden of St. Mark's Mis- 
sion in Raleigh received a similar gift 
from Miss Linda Chantos, daughter 
of Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Chantos, and 
Mr. Robert C. Howison, Jr., senior 
warden of Christ Church, received a 
gift for the Christ Church Building 
Fund from Miss Annette Ayers, daugh- 
ter of Mr. and Mrs. William B. Ayers. 
It was pointed out to the young peo- 
ple at that time that this was an ex- 
ample of mutual responsibility, since 
the Bishop was bringing to them the 
first hand experience of a missionary 
for God and was bringing to the can- 
didates the gift of confirmation. Fol- 
lowing the Family Service the Bishop 
was entertained at a coffee hour. 

At 6 o'clock Sunday evening, Bishop 
Gooden addressed a group of 135 
young people representing the five Ra- 
leigh parishes and missions. He spoke 
enthusiastically of the 25 young peo- 
ple who went to Panama last summer 
from the Diocese of North Carolina. 
On Monday evening Bishop Gooden 
addressed a joint meeting of the men 
and women of Christ Church. His 
quick wit and enthusiasm gave him a 
natural rapport with all members of 
the congregation and went a great way 
in deepening their interest in our Com- 
panion Diocese. 

While in Raleigh Bishop Gooden 
was the guest of Mr. and Mrs. 
Henry D. Haywood. Mrs. Haywood is 
the secretary of missions for the Christ 
Church Episcopal Churchwomen and 
was a member of the Bishop's Tour 
of Panama last summer.

Beautiful, durable Winnsboro Blue Granite monuments 
with proper inscriptions will dignify the memories of those 
we love and continue their lives into the years. 

Symbolic in design and reverent in purpose, these monu- 
ments are lasting tributes of honor to the dead and constant 
sources of inspiration to the living. 


'The Silk of the Trade" 

Excels as a monumental stone because of its fine adapt- 
ability to design, flawless beauty, stalwart strength and 
great durability. 

There are many granites that have a surface resemblance 
to Winnsboro Blue Granite, but they do not possess its durable 
qualities and lasting beauty.

Chaplain Is Given 
Pat on the Back 

The Diocese work with college stu- 
dents received notice recently in The 
Davidsonian, student newspaper at Da- 
vidson College. 

The Rev. Thomas J. C. Smyth, chap- 
lain at the Episcopal Student Center 
in Greensboro, sent a clipping with this 
comment: "The enclosed clipping 
speaks of the imagination of one col- 
lege chaplain-mission priest . . . Bill j 
Morris." The clipping follows: 

"With vespers gone, the college is 
doing nothing officially to explore the 
meaning of the Christian faith and its 
applications to today's world. While 
the vesper service was in reality more 
a symbol of the college's Christian 
commitment than an actual forum for 
thought and debate, it occasionally 
brought in free-thinking individuals 
who had escaped traditional lines of 

"But in the meantime, there has de- 
veloped since last spring a meaning- 
ful avenue of thought provocation on 
the school's role as a Christian liberal i 
arts college. Concerned members of j 
St. Alban's Episcopal Church, many 
of whom are connected with the col- 
lege as employes but who as a group j 
are independent of the school, have 
produced a number of programs rais- j 
ing vital questions about the nature 
of a church-related college. 

"A reading of W. B. Yeats' The j 
Resurrection provided last week the 
focal point of a discussion to mark 
the church's latest venture into ques- 
tioning Davidson's role in the twen- 
tieth century. But the play was only 
the latest in a number of programs 
that have included a debate among 
four faculty members, a series of ser- 
mons directed towards the academic 
life and another play. 

"As an independent group, the 
church is free to explore a number of 
sensitive areas that a college-spon- 
sor ed program might shrink from. 

"Until and even after the college de- 
termines the outward form its Chris- 
tian commitment will take St. Alban's 
is performing an invaluable function 
to the community as a whole in help- 
ing it to orient itself to today's world." 


The Churchman 

Church of the Month 

. . New Congregation of 200 Members Following Service 

Editor's Note: The following ar- 
ticle is reprinted from "The High 
Point Enterprise." 

The High Point area's second Epis- 
copal Church will be instituted today 
(October 2) at St. Mary's Episcopal 
Church in a ceremony of transfer. 

St. Christopher's Episcopal Church 
will be located at 225 Eastchester Dr., 
with first services in the new quarters 
set next Sunday. 

Reason for the establishment of the 
second Episcopal congregation is the 
growth of St. Mary's membership be- 

yond the church's capacity. The local 
church presently has a membership of 
625 communicants. 

Today's service of transfer will con- 
clude with the members of the new 
congregation, led by their rector, Rev. 
W. I. Wolverton Jr., proceeding out 
of the service to begin their work in 
the new church. 

First services in the new church, a 
converted residence, will be held next 
Sunday at 7:30 a.m. and at 10 a.m. 

On the following Sunday, Oct. 16, 
the 7:30 a.m. services will be held in 
the new plant and the 10 a.m. family 
service and church school will be held 

... Out of Church and Into the World 

in Kirkman Park School. These latter 
services will continue in the school un- 
til the new congregation builds wor- 
ship facilities on Eastchester. 

Noting that the size of the St. Mary's 
congregation was growing to soon tax 
the church plant, Rector William P. 
Price early this year appointed a mis- 
sion committee to study the problem. 

Members of the mission committee 
included Baxter Freeze, chairman; 
Robert Darden, co-chairman; and 
Shepherd Ames, Mrs. Olivia Wads- 
ley, Ed Smothers, Blake Leckie, Mrs. 
Ralston Welch, Mrs. John Wall, Dr. 
Nelson McCoss, Jim Bulla, Tom Whit- 
ner, and Mrs. David Smith. 

The committee recommended that 
plans be pursued looking to establish- 
ment of a mission within some three 
years. The committee's reason for this 
recommendation was that a second 
church in the High Point area would 
help the Episcopal Church minister to 
the area's needs. 

Then, in the spring, through au- 
thority of the vestry committee of St. 
Mary's, it was decided that the need 
for the mission was urgent enough to 
immediately begin work on the project. 

Helping make the decision was a 
report of Capt. Osborne Mauck of 
the Episcopal Church Army. He had 
been asked to help in the survey of the 
local situation regarding a mission. 

After the decision was made for 
establishment of the new church, St. 
Mary's vestrymen appointed a land 

December 1966 


committee to search for a site for the 
mission. Members of this committee 
included Jim Bulla, chairman; Dr. Mc- 
Coss, Gilbert Clinard, Charles Hart- 
soe and Darden. They selected the 
site on Eastchester. 

Also, a survey was made of the St. 
Mary's congregation to ascertain those 
interested in becoming members of 
the new congregation. Since the sur- 
vey's beginning approximately 200 
volunteers have joined the new con- 

So, today, all the efforts come to 
fruition with the ceremonial establish- 
ment of the church. 

Its new minister came to St. Mary's 
in October of 1964 as associate rector. 
He is a native of Smithfield and a 
son of Dr. and Mrs. W. I. Wolverton 
who presently make their home in 
Montgomery, Ala. 

Nicknamed Ben, the rector noted 
that his father is a retired Air Force 
chaplain and a teacher, as well as a 

Rev. Mr. Wolverton attended the 
University of Chicago and interrupted 
his college career to serve in the Army. 
He emerged from the Paratroops as 
a 1st Lieutenant in 1953. 

He then entered East Carolina Col- 
lege at Greenville, where his parents 
were then living and his father was 
rector of St. Paul's Episcopal Church. 

Following his 1956 graduation from 
East Carolina he entered the Church 
Divinity School of the Pacific in Berke- 
ley, Calif., graduating in 1959. 

That same year he was ordained 
to the diaconate and in the winter of 

. . . Follows Crucifer 


I960 Rev. Mr. Wolverton was or- 
dained to the priesthood. He served 
churches in Fayetteville, Grifton and 
Ayden before coming to High Point. 

Married to the former Miss Terry 
Flanagan of Greenville, Rev. and 
Mrs. Wolverton have two children, 
Benjamin, 22 months; and Christman, 
9 months. They reside on Country 
Club Drive. 

The new church is to begin as a 
parochial mission of St. Mary's, and 
will continue to receive support from 
the parent church during its establish- 

This is a third expansion of the 
St. Mary's congregation. 

The church was organized as a mis- 
sion in 1882, at the home of Josiah 
Remfry at the corner of Broad and 
College streets. This also was the site 
of the Female College. The first name 
for the congregation was St. James 
Mission. The organization was con- 
ducted under a Bishop Lyman, and 
the congregation consisted of "15 
communicants of the Anglican faith." 

In 1900 a new church structure at 
the corner of W. Washington and Col- 
lege (Hayden Place) streets was oc- 
cupied and the name changed to its 
present form, St. Mary's. That plant 
became too small, within some 30 
years, and the present St. Mary's was 
occupied in 1928.

Open Letter To Diocese 

The Diocesan Council regrets to inform the people of the Diocese of North 
Carolina that the Council has been forced to reduce the proposed 1967 budget 
for the program of our Church in the Diocese by $38,000. This means that all 
expansion of our work for new missions, college work, institutions and MRI has 
been curtailed. 

Most congregations have accepted their full quotas, and we commend them 
for their sense of stewardship. There are a few congregations who have special 
circumstances that make it impossible for them to accept their assigned quotas. 
Other congregations have felt a need to accept less than their full quotas be- 
cause of temporary problems, and we ask them to re-examine their priorities. 

Your Diocesan Council believes in the program as given in the proposed 
budget. We regret that so much of our anticipated work must be deleted. We 
urge all congregations to reflect on this weighty matter. It is our hope that 
through the generosity of all we can restore the deleted priority items so that 
we may more clearly demonstrate our response and obedience to the mission 
of our Lord through our Diocesan program. 

Sincerely yours, 

The Diocesan Council

This Issue Of NC Churchman 
New Communication Effort 

My Fellow Churchmen: 

We are trying something new this year hoping that it will be appreciated and 
helpful to all of the people of the Diocese. 

While it is true that only an elected delegation from each congregation attends* 
the Diocesan Convention, I feel that all of you are interested in the program andi 
work of the Diocese. 

Therefore, the Editorial Board of the North Carolina Churchman thought 
that devoting a complete issue of the magazine to pre-Convention material would 
be a good way to tell the story, not only to the delegates, but to all the members 
of the Diocese. 

I urge you to look through this entire edition. Naturally, some articles will 
attract your attention more than others. May you find this edition of our Di- 
ocesan magazine helpful as we prepare for our Convention, as well as informa- 

I bid the prayers of all the people of the Diocese for the work and program 
we all attempt to do. Especially, do I ask you to pray for the success of the 
Diocesan Convention which will be held in Winston-Salem, January 31, anc 
February 1. 

Faithfully yours, 
Thomas A. Fraser

St. Paul's Church At Winston-Salem 
Host For 151st Diocesan Convention 


... A History of Building Programs 

St. Paul's, Winston-Salem 

St. Paul's Church, Winston-Salem is 
ost for the 151st Annual Convention 
£ the Diocese January 31 and Febru- 
ry 1. St. Paul's story could be told 
irough the account of building pro- 
rams. There have been two church 
wildings and a parish house, replaced 
y the present church and education 
Uilding. The story, however, is best 
^ld through persons and the service 
eing rendered by them in the parish, 
jmmunity, nation, and world. 

St. Paul's is proud to claim two 
ishops as former rectors — the present 
•iocesan, The Rt. Rev. Thomas A. 
Iraser, and the retired Bishop of the 
[iocese of Western North Carolina, 
(he Rt. Rev. Robert E. Gribbin. 
j Sons who are serving in the ministry 
I the Church are: 

The Rev. Mark Alan Boesser, the 
lev. Tom Turney Edwards, the Rev. 
Ick Bennett, the Rev. Albert S. New- 
Mi, and the Rev. Robert M. Watson, 
hilip C. Ogden, Jr. is a senior semi- 
arian at General Seminary. 

The Rev. Emmet Gribbin, the Rev. 
Thomas Redfern, and the Rev. Na- 
thaniel Hynson were not candidates 
from our parish, but we like to feel 
that because of their association in 
Winston - Salem we have a small 
claim upon them. 

Miss Rachel Wolff went from St. 
Paul's as a missionary to Women's 
Christian College, Madras, India, in 
1950 and served there until 1963. She 
now is our missionary to Katmandu, 

The following bishops and clergy 
shared in the history of St. Paul's 

Bishop John S. Ravenscroft visited 
Salem in 1827. Bishop Levi Silliman 
Ives visited Salem by invitation of the 
Moravian Bishop in June, 1833 and 
preached in the Moravian Church in 
August, 1842. Bishop Thomas Atkin- 
son in his address to the diocesan con- 
vention in 1855 spoke of establishing 
a mission in the village of Winston, 
the county seat for Forsyth County. 
The Rev. T. G. Haughton, in charge of 
the church in Lexington, preached in 

the Moravian Church in 1857. Bishop 
Atkinson preached in the Moravian 
Church in Salem on November 11, 
1873. Bishop Theodore Benedict Ly- 
man preached in the court house of 
Winston on May 5, 1874, and looked 
forward to a permanent building for 
church services. The Rev. Frances J. 
Murdoch, rector of St. Luke's, Salis- 
bury, supplied Winston with occa- 
sional services . . . during 1874. The 
Rev. N. Collin Hughes lived in Greens- 
boro and had charge of several mis- 
sionary stations, including Winston dur- 
ing 1875. The Rev. William Shipp 
Bynum, deacon in charge of St. Barna- 
bas, Greensboro, served Winston 
during 1876-1881. At that time there 
were 35 communicants. 

The Rev. Robert Bean Sutton, rec- 
tor of St. Barnabas, Greensboro, as- 
sisted by Mr. Bynum, had charge of 
the Winston Mission in 1878. The first 
church building was consecrated $m 
February 11, 1879 by Bishop Lymaj. 
Its location was at the corner of Fourth 
and Pine (now Marshall Street). On 


Here's the timetable for the 
151st annual convention at St. 
Paul's in Winston-Salem. 

On Tuesday, January 31 the 
two-day gathering convenes at 
10 a.m. following an 8:00 a.m. 
Communion Service and the regis- 
tration of delegates. The first day's 
morning session will adjourn for 
lunch at 1:00 p.m. with St. Paul's 
as host. The afternoon session will 
run from 2 until 4:45 p.m. Dele- 
gates will be on their own for sup- 
per prior to an evening session 
which begins at 7:45 p.m. 

It is anticipated that the usual 
convention business can be con- 
cluded on the first day so that 
Wednesday, February 1, might be 
devoted to the election of a suf- 
fragan bishop. An 8:00 a.m. com- 
munion is scheduled Wednesday 
followed by an 8:40 a.m. breakfast 
at St. Paul's. 

The final session of the 151st 
convention begins at 9:30 a.m. and 
will adjourn following the election.

Push Worship, Get Out Of Institution Business, Re-Train For Future: 

Diocese Of N. C. Takes Look At Self 



Committee on the State of the Church 

The State of the Church in the 
Diocese of North Carolina in 1966 
may be described as one of overall 
health and vitality; however there are 
two areas to which attention must be 


The basic factor which makes for 
health and vitality we believe to be a 
strong emphasis on worship. Various 
professional groups, such as social 
workers and sociologists, with whom 
we have been in dialogue, point out 
that worship is that which the Church 
can do best and for which there is a 
great need in our rapidly changing 
society. Through our response to God 
'in worship we are not only faithful to 
the priorities of our Lord Jesus Christ 
for worship first then ethics, but also 
faithful to that which, as Anglicans, 
we do best. The particular glory of the 
Episcopal Church is worship. Through 
stately praise and thanksgiving, done 

thy's, St. Stephen's, and St. Anne's. 
The Church's work has been further 
extended by a full-time college chap- 
lain, the first one being The Rev. 
Richard Ottaway in the fall of 1964. 
Mr. Ottaway began his new work as 
director of the Institute of Church and 
Industry the fall of 1966, and The 
Rev. William R. Merrill is now col- 
lege chaplain. The Episcopal Church 
in Winston - Salem also sponsors a 
Downtown Ministry Office. 

Efforts are being made to preserve 
the history of St. Paul's Church. A 
room has been designated as an ar- 
chives and will be known as "The 
Tower Room." A historian, Miss Rosa- 
lie S. Wilson, and her assistants, Mrs. 
■Shelton Heekin and Mrs. Lamar 
iNorthup, are assembling material for a 
■history. A record of deeds, list of 
■clergymen, vestrymen, population, and 
Isignificant events within and outside the 
: Iparish are being compiled. 
1 St. Paul's was host to the Diocesan 
{Convention for the first time in 1880. 
[fOther conventions have been held in 
ijWinston-Salem, and St. Paul's looks 
Jjiforward to the 151st Convention. (End) 

decently and in order, we express both 
the beauty of holiness and the joy of 
the restored and forgiven fellowship. 
This worship is focused in the celebra- 
tion of the Holy Eucharist and framed 
by the Offices of Morning and Evening 
Prayer and the daily devotion of the 

We commend, therefore, those par- 
ishes and missions who are striving 
to make the rich heritage of our church 
a living reality. We are, also, thankful 
that the Diocese has sought to show 
us ways in which this heritage might 
come alive. The Conference on Wor- 
ship was a case in point, for there we 
saw something of the use of the arts, 
particularly drama, in making worship 
vital. The special festival services such 
as the diocesan ordinations and the 
Acolytes Festival in Durham, likewise, 
show in a dramatic way how worship 
can be done well. Yet we believe that 
in order to make worship the central 
focus out of which flows social and 
ethical concern, more help is needed. 
We note the Luturgical Commission's 
interest in liturgical renewal and re- 
quest (1) that plans to make this 
meaningful on the parish level pro- 
ceed with all deliberate speed. 

Much concern has been expressed 
about the need for more effective 
Christian instruction and education. In 
order to come to grips with this the 
clergy studied a report on Confirma- 
tion and First Communion at the 
Clergy Conference. This report has 

been studied further by clergy and 
laity on the convocational level. We 
trust that some clear guidelines and 
standards of instruction may be forth- 
coming in the near future. 

The serious interest we have in 
Christians in other parts of the world 
and in other ecclesiastical traditions 
is a sign of health and vigor. Our com- 
pansionship through MRI with the 
Diocese of Panama has brought both 
young people and adults into direct 
contact with Christians in Latin 
America. Both the young people who 
worked in Panama this summer and 
the adults who toured there with the 
Bishop have come back with a deeper 
understanding of what mission in- 
volves. We hope that such contacts 
can continue on a broader basis. This 
involvement in mission was also deep- 
ened by the four day tour of Bishop 
Bayne to the convocations of the Dio- 
cese. Our concern has Tiot only been 
with other Anglicans, as may be seen 
in the affirmative response to the 
COCU Conference in Durham. We 
commend our involvement in the ecu- 
menical enterprise and look forward 
to further contacts on the local level. 

This important thrust outward is also 
evident within the Diocese in the ex- 
tention of work in High Point and 
Charlotte, and in the exploratory 
Downtown Ministry of the four Win- 
ston - Salem congregations which 
through an office in the Wachovia 
Building offer counselling and an op- 
portunity for dialogue with the busi- 
ness community. The work of the laity 
is to be noted also, particularly at the 
Rowan Prison Unit in Salisbury. 

The most obvious indication of the 
health of the Diocese is in the steward- 
ship with which we handle the monies 
entrusted to us. The diocesan staff and 
those charged with financial responsi- 
bility are to be commended for the 
way in which they have trimmed the 
Budget for 1967 through consolidation 
and tighter planning. We note with 
satisfaction that nearly $19,000 has 
been removed without sacrifice to vital 
program, as well as the use of the 
contingency fund for new or expanded 
work coming to the Bishop's attention. 
The proposal for increases in the sal- 
aries of diocesan personnel, which was 
the result of a lengthy study by the 

.January 1967 


Finance Department, we applaud be- 
cause it will be an important factor in 
insuring that we have first-rate peo- 
ple serving in this Diocese. 

The use of priorities is one of the 
most encouraging signs of continued 
health in the Diocese. We particularly 
commend the 1968 priorities for in- 
cluding plans that do not involve the 
expenditure of funds. The Convention 
has an important role to play in these 
priorities. It should not be a "rubber- 
stamp" of Diocesan House plans, but 
should thoroughly and fairly analyze 
all proposals. The pre-convention is- 
sue of the Churchman, we believe, 
has enabled not only the delegates but 
the Diocese at large to be better in- 
formed about what is proposed and* 
thus better able to vote wisely. 

The fit condition of this Diocese is 
in no small part due to the great grace 
and tact with which the Director of 
Program carries out his work. Yet the 
prime factor is the firm leadership of 
our Bishop. His leadership has been 
greatly enhanced through the area visi- 
tations which enabled him to be in 
closer contact with his priests and peo- 
ple. We are pleased to note that these 
area visitations will continue. 

Two footnotes to what we have been 
saying so far: i) the Structure and 
Organization of the Diocese received 
national recognition in Church in 
Metropolis (Spring, 1966, pp 16-17). 
ii) A statistical analysis, prepared by 
Captain Osborne Mauck, CA, shows 
that there has been a slight but steady 
growth since 1950. In comparison with 
the population of the 39 counties that 
comprise the Diocese, in 1950 we had 
one baptized person in every 94 of 
the population and one communicant 
for every 131 persons. In 1965 we 
had one baptized person for every 70 
and one communicant in 99. 

This committee through its chair- 
man is charged with the responsibility 
of giving as clear and comprehensive 
picture of the state of the Diocese as 
possible. In order, therefore, that we 
may have greater access to both the 
facts and the spirit of the Diocese we 
request (2) that the chairman of this 
committee be given a sufficiently sen- 
sitive place within the structure. 


While the overall picture is one of 
health and vigor, there are two areas 
which need to be diagnosed. One area 
is the institutions which the Diocese 
supports. Basic questions that need to 
be constantly before the people of the 

. . . Needed: Reality 

Diocese include: Does a particular in- 
stitution fulfill the need for which it 
was intended? Could a professional, 
non-church organization run the fa- 
cility more efficiently and effectively 
than the Church? What is the proper 
role of the Church in the modern 
world? We do not pretend to be able 
to give adequate answers to these and 
similar questions. But we do hope that 
appropriate persons will look at them 
and that they will consider, among 
other data, the following: 

Is Vade Mecum, into which we have 
poured much emotion and money over 
the years, adequate to what is asked 
of it? What is, in fact, being asked of 
Vade Mecum? Could Vade Mecum be 
more effective as a strictly conference 
center? Similar but less urgent ques- 
tions could be asked of the Terraces 
as well. We are pleased to learn that 
a committee of the Diocesan Council 
has just been appointed to study the 
camp and conference facilities of the 
Diocese and has begun its work. 

Likewise we wonder whether the 
Penick Home and the Thompson Or- 
phanage would not function better un- 
der non-Church control. Many stu- 
dents of such things, including those 
who participated in the Changing Cul- 
ture Conference two years ago, believe 
that while the Church should take the 
initiative in seeing that such work is 
begun, the people whom these institu- 
tions serve will be better cared for by 
professional agencies who provide peo- 
ple especially trained for such work. 
We note with gratitude the fine work 
of the acting manager of the Penick 

Home and the high quality of the staff 
of Thompson Orphanage, yet we seri- 
ously question whether it should be the 
Diocese, per se, who runs these fa- 
cilities. We therefore request (3) that 
an appropriate body study the issues 
herein raised and report to the next 

The other area within the Diocese 
where there are signs of stress is 
harder to deal with. We hear much 
about the world coming of age, re- 
ligionless Christianity, the secular city, 
the demise of the parish as we know 
it, non-professional clergy, and for 
those who would believe it, even the 
death of God. We hear many clergy 
express doubts and uncertainties 
about their function and role in our 
society. Loud is the cry for adequate 
measuring devices and effective job 
descriptions for both parish and spe- 
cialized clergy. Industry and business 
continually re-train their men so that 
they may confidently face the fasci- 
nating future. Yet many of the clergy 
view the future with alarm. The parish 
life and structure conversations which 
began late this year are a good first 
step. Continual opportunities for fur- 
ther training should be made avail- 
able, yet we are disappointed to learn 
that few clergy have indicated interest 
in the sabbatical leave program pre- 
sented last year. This crisis among 
clerics is not limited to this Diocese, 
to be sure. It may well be, however, 
that just because this Diocese is gen- 
erally in such a healthy condition, it 
can serve itself, and the larger Church 
as well, by a thorough analysis of this 
problem and how it might be handled. 
We therefore request (4) that the 
Bishop, as Pastor of the pastors, ex- 
plore with them this most perplexing 


We began our study with the com- 
ment that it is from drawing near to 
God in worship that Church and peo- 
ple are enabled to go out and serve 
the world in which they live and for 
whom Christ died. We end with the 
firm belief that this Diocese will con- 
tinue to grow and flourish and will 
be able to answer the questions we 
have raised, and many others, only if 
our first loyalty and faithful response 
is to the source and sustainer of the en- 
tire universe, the Lord God, our Father, 
who is most clearly seen in Jesus Christ 
and present with us now through the 
Holy Spirit. (End)

Department of Long Range Planning 

As a part of the responsibility com- 
mitted to it, the Department of Long 
Range Planning presented to the Di- 
ocesan Council, and the Council tenta- 
tively adopted, the following 1968 
departmental programs and financial 
appropriations for their support, both 
of which will be reviewed at least three 
times prior to their final adoption in 
Jan. 1968. 

It should be kept in mind that the 
items listed "A" relate to already exist- 
ing work; and the items listed "B" re-

cation makes no special financial pri- 
ority requests at this time, pending the 
full implementation of its present pro- 

The Department of Christian Social 
Relations requests a "B" priority of 
$11,000 for the placement of a second 
hospital chaplain to serve in the Dur- 
ham-Chapel Hill medical centers. So 
valuable has become the work of 
Chaplain William C. Spong in these 
areas that the demands and oppor- 
tunities far exceed one chaplain's ca- 

The Department of college work 
makes no priority requests now as 
the recently adopted new salary scale 
and present commitments satisfy their 
immediately substantiatable require- 

The Department of Missions re- 
quests "A" appropriations of $8,200 
and $5,000, respectively, for the relo- 
cation within Charlotte of the Church 
of St. Michael and All Angels and 
the Chapel of Hope. It requests a "B" 
appropriation of $8,200 for a new mis- 
sion now being established in Greens- 
boro. In all three instances, the 
amounts requested will be used for 
clergy placement. 

The Department of Overseas Mis- 
sion requested $5,000 in the "A" 
category for the National Church's 
M. R. I. program and $2,100 for a 
greatly enlarged new "Companion Di- 
ocese" relationship, including full study 
materials, with the Diocese of Coven-

Jobs Classified, Salary Ranges Set 
By Diocesan Finance Department 

Chairman, Department of Finance 

Growth and change in the Diocese 
require some rethinking of the 
Church's program by all departments, 
including the Department of Finance. 

While the Department of Finance 
cannot escape its role as "watchdog 
of the treasury," neither can it for- 
get the Parable of the Talents. This 
department recognizes a responsibility 
to help promote the Church's program 
by making available both current and 
reserve funds for approved needs and 
uses. Therefore, since January 1965, 
at the request of the Bishop, and sub- 
ject to the approval of the Diocesan 
Council, the Department of Finance 
has been engaged in the following ac- 
tivities in addition to approval of 
budget requests and the preparation 
of the annual budget: 

1. Extension of the pension pro- 
gram for all diocesan employees; 

2. A comparative study of diocesan 

Cites Growth, Change 

on the west line of New Hope Road 
with a depth of 316 feet, in exchange 
for a 10-foot strip of land on the 
southern edge of the property approxi- 
mately 600 feet long conveying to the 
trustees by Mrs. Vara M. Smith, the 

salaries, with salaries of other dioceses 
and with city and state salary ranges; 

3. A diocesan job classification study 
with the assistance of the Employment 
Security Commission; 

4. Formulation and adoption of a 
job classification and salary range, with 
interim steps for merit increases; 

5. Recommendations as to person- 
nel records, leave regulations and other 
personnel policies; 

6. Further implementation of the 
"Organization and Structure Study" of 
the Diocese toward better coordina- 
tion and consolidation of all business 
management services; and 

7. A review of and policy recom- 
mendations concerning reserve funds 
and trust funds of the Diocese. 

New budget item request forms have 
been devised and conferences have 
been arranged with department chair- 
men in all cases where requests have 
not been fully approved. 

The 1967 budget, like that of 1966, 
has eliminated numerous contingency 
items in various departments with pro- 
vision instead for the General Contin- 
gency Fund to be utilized upon proper 

The 1967 budget, as recommended 
by this department and approved by 
the Diocesan Council, represents an 
increase over the 1966 budget of only 
$317.00 in the Episcopal Maintenance 
Fund and $28,787.00 in the Church's 
Program Fund. 

The Department of Finance has 
been guided and assisted in its work 
by the Bishop, the Director of Pro- 
gram, the Treasurer, as well as the 
department chairmen. Members of the 
Department of Finance, in addition 
to the Chairman, are Arthur L. Tyler 
of Rocky Mount, James O. Moore of 
Charlotte, and Robert Darden, Jr. of 
High Point. (End)

designated by Diocesan Council, Epis- 
copal Churchwomen, and Episcopal 
Churchmen, until sometime after the 
Annual Convention of the Diocese. 

The following Amendment to the 
Constitution was duly adopted on First 
Reading, February 1, 1966, by the 
150th Annual Convention of the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina, and is sub- 
mitted to the 151st Annual Conven- 
tion for final adoption: 

Final Adoption 

The Committee on Canons recom- 
mends that Article IX, Section 3, be 
amended as follows: 

Section 3 

That Section 3 of Article IX be 
stricken. That a new Section 3 in the 
following form be adopted in lieu 
thereof, to-wit: 

"SEC. 3. In all Parochial and Mis- 
sion elections only those shall be en- 
titled to vote who are adult communi- 
cants in good standing in this Church, 
members of such Parish or Mission, 
and who thereby consent to be gov- 
erned by the Constitution and Canons 
of this Church as are or may be 
adopted by the General Convention, 
and the Convention of the Diocese 
pursuant thereto." 

Existing Article IX, Section 3 

SEC. 3. In all Parochail elections 
none shall be entitled to vote but 
communicants of the age of twenty- 
one years, members of the Parish, who 
shall have subscribed a declaration in 
the following words, viz: 

"We, the undersigned, do hereby 
consent to be governed by the Con-i 
stitution and Canons of the Church, 
as set forth in General Convention, 
and by the Constitution and Canons 
of the Church in this Diocese." 


The existing Article requires the 
declaration to be subscribed by those 
entitled to vote in Parochail elections. 
This requirement has been generally 
overlooked or ignored in the past. Its 
purpose is good and valid. 

The following Amendment to the 
Constitution was duly adopted on First 
Reading, February 1, 1966, by the 
150th Annual Convention of the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina, and is sub- 
mitted to the 151st Annual Conven-

mends that Article III, Section 4 and 
Section 6, be amended as follows: 

Section 4 

That the word, "male," in line four 
of Section 4 be stricken, and the word, 
"adult," be inserted in lieu thereof. 
That the colon in line four of Section 
4 be stricken and the words, "in good 
standing in this Church," be added 
after the word, "Parish" in said line 

Section 6 

That the word, "male," in line four 
of Section 6 be deleted. That the com- 
ma in line five of Section 6 be stricken 
and the words, "in good standing in

Parish in union with the Convention 
shall be entitled to be represented at its 
sessions by one or more delegates, not 
exceeding four, to be chosen by the 
Vestry from among the male communi-

shall be entitled to elect, in addition, 
four alternate delegates, subject to the 
same qualification, who shall be au- 
thorized, in the order of their election, 
to fill any vacancy that may occur in 
the delegation originally chosen: Pro- 
vided, that no person, clerical or lay, I 
under Ecclesiastical censure, publicly I 
declared by a competent tribunal, shall 
be admissible to seat in the Conven- 
tion: Provided, further, that no per- 
son shall be allowed to represent more 
than one Parish in the same Conven- 

Existing Section 6 of Article III 

SEC. 6. Each regularly Organized 
Mission in union with the Convention, 
and having not less than twenty adult 
communicants, shall be entitled to be 
represented at the sessions of the Con- 
vention by one delegate, to be elected

adult male communicants of the Mis- 
sion, subject to the conditions and limi- 
tations of Section 4. 


Will make eligible for election as 
delegates to the Convention of this 
Diocese, all adult communicants of 
such Parish or Organized Mission in

the Constitution of the General Con- 
vention, adopted on first reading at 
the St. Louis Convention in 1964, will

Seattle Convention in September 1967. 
Copies of these proposed amendments 
were read to the 1965 Diocesan Con- 
vention (Article XI and Canon 1, Sec. 
1(e) ) and are printed at pages 109- 
110 and 111 of the 1965 Journal. 
Copies were also mailed in 1965 to 
each Parish and Mission in the Diocese 
of North Carolina by the Secretary of 
the Diocese. (End)

the present program year this objec- 
tive: to promote better understanding 
among young people of the Diocese, 
especially those of the same com- 
munity, stressing our mutual respon- 
sibility and interrelatedness. 

This theme was adopted because 
we felt that the E.Y.C. was split into 
several isolated groups instead of being 
a unified body. To implement this 
purpose, presidents of parochial 
E.Y.C. organizations were urged to 
adopt a yearly program that included 
much activity with other parishes in 
the same area. 

Suggested projects were work days, 
study programs, retreats, parties, ser- 
vice projects and corporate com- 
munions. The Commission urged all 
parishes also to participate in ecu- 
menical activity, especially in those 
communities where there is only one 
Episcopal church. 

This year, the E.Y.C. plans to hold 
its convention at the Church of the 
Holy Comforter in Burlington. To fur- 
ther emphasize its stated purpose for 
this year, the Youth Commission de- 
cided to plan the convention along 
the lines that would stress the corn-

Self Analysis Feature Of ECW Year 

President, Episcopal Churchwomen 

Shortly after the 150th Annual Con- 
vention of the Diocese, the Executive 
Board of the Episcopal Churchwomen 
took the first step in a critical analysis 
of its organizational structure. Miss 
Olive Mae Mulica, a staff member of 
the General Division of Women's 
Work, led the evaluation session. 

The process was painful. Neverthe- 
less, we expect to continue the evalua- 
tion, keeping in mind what we are 
trying to do, why we are doing it, and 
how we are doing it. Without a doubt, 
change is inevitable. Lest we act in- 
advertently and precipitously, how- 
ever, proposed changes will be studied 
carefully and people educated before 
any concerted attempt at effecting 
them is made. 

The rapidity with which we move 
depends largely upon the final action 
of the 151st Annual Convention in

through an appropriate movie and

The climax to the E.Y.C. activities 
of this year will be reached at the 
various Vade Mecum conferences. By 
expanding the E.Y.C. theme, the Vade

atmosphere suitable for unifying the 
various ideas expressed during the 
year. (End)

Chairman, Synod Deputation 

No one seems sure what to do with 
synods in our day. The very existence 
of provinces reflects a day of difficult 
communication and limited outlook 
that has ceased to be. Some provinces, 
finding nothing to meet about, seldom 
come together in synod. Some dioceses, 
feeling the province has no purpose 
left, have withdrawn from their synod. 
Our province two years ago devised a 
new type of synod, in which business 
meetings are kept to a minimum, and 
the emphasis placed on departmental 

Each diocese is asked to send the 
chairmen of the Departments of Chris- 
tian Social Relations, Christian Edu- 
cation, College Work, Missions, Pro- 
motions, and Finance, a clergyman or 
a layman from each department 
(which ever the chairman is not), and 
the chairman of the corresponding di- 

has been a good year for Episcopal 
Churchwomen, though our statistics 
will probably remain about the same 
as last year: approximately 100 
branches with a membership of 6,200 
members contributing about $78,500 
through pledges, specials, United 
Thank Offering, and Church Periodi- 
cal Fund. This sum, which does not 
include monies spent locally, repre- 
sents Episcopal Churchwomen minis- 
tering to others through many chan- 
nels. Read our 1966-'67 year book 
for a more comprehensive report. 

The Retreats, Spring Planning Days, 
Annual Meeting, Vade Mecum Con- 
ference, and Quiet Day were success- 
ful in that they were inspiring, infor- 
mative, stimulating, and challenging to 
those attending. To our Bishop, Direc- 
tor of Program, clergy and others who 
helped us, we are most grateful. Like- 
wise, those of us who were privileged 
to attend the Liturgical Conference, 
COCU Conference, and MRI Semi- 
nars extend appreciation to the Dio- 
cese. (End)

numbers in other dioceses and with 
experts in their field. Four from our 
Diocese helped lead these workshops 
at the 1966 Synod at Sewanee: Mrs. 
Eleanor Godfrey, the Rev. Messrs. 
Joseph O'Brien, Charles Penick, and 
Martin Tilson. 

There were brief business sessions, 
at which two matters were discussed 
at length. First, a committee had been 
appointed the year before to study di- 
ocesan representation in the House 
of Deputies at General Convention. 
The committee suggested that our 
province favor a smaller House of 
Deputies, in which each diocese would 
continue to have equal representation. 
A "minority" report, signed by two of 
the four members of the committee, 
favored proportionate representation, 
with larger dioceses having more 
deputies than smaller ones. The pro- 
posal for equal representation was ap- 
proved, but both reports were sent to 
General Convention. 

Second, we heard a controversial re- 
port on clergy placement. It suggested: 
(1) The establishment of a provin- 
cial clearing-house for the placement 
of clergy, through the office of the 
dean at the seminary at Sewanee; (2) 
Limiting clergy tenure to 15 years; 

(3) Changing the general canons so 
that the Bishop's approval is required 
before a rector may be called; and 

(4) Changing the general canons to 
separate those who voluntarily re- 
nounce the ministry from those who 
leave because of misconduct. The Syn- 
od approved the report in principle, 
and sent it back to the committee for 
more study. 

Since the Synod meeting, our depu- 
tation has met, to evaluate our experi- 
ence there. Out of this meeting came 
the following recommendations: 

A. Recommendations to This Diocese 

1. That we send a full delegation to 
the 1967 Synod. There has been talk 
of not doing so. However, we would 
remind the Diocese that the Synod is 
in the second year of a three-year ex- 
periment. For this third year, we feel 
the Diocese should cooperate fully with 
the Province. After the 1967 Synod, 
we will be better able to evaluate our 
relationship to the provincial organi- 

2. That Diocesan Canon XXXV be 
changed so that Synod deputies will be 
appointed by the Bishop rather than 
elected at convention. There is no 
way, through election, of sending the 

. . . Reports on LTO 

people the Synod wants and for whom 
it is designed. 

3. That department chairmen be in- 
structed to attend the 1967 Synod. 

4. That the Department of Finance 
search for other sources of money for 
Synod expenses, outside the diocesan 
budget. We are uneasy about what our 
trip cost the Diocese. 

B. Recommendations to the Province 

(1) That the Synod meet some- 
where other than at Sewanee. We had 
delegates stranded in Atlanta, Chatta- 
nooga, and Monteagle. 

(2) That a commission made up of 
those trained in liturgies be given re- 
sponsibility for planning Synod ser- 

(3) That there be no business meet- 
ing at the Synod, that the entire time 
be given to departmental workshops. 

(4) That workshops be offered 
from time to time in other fields, such 
as MRI and church union. 

(5) That greater use be made of 
representatives of this State and Di- 
ocese on provincial commissions. 

(6) That our Province be divided, 
with North Carolina, South Carolina, 
Georgia, and Florida forming one 
province, and the remaining five states 
making another province. (End) 

President, Episcopal Laymen 

Our efforts are to enlist loyal and 
alert churchmen to exert themselves 
beyond the circle of their own com- 
fort and convenience to proclaim the 
Gospel not only with their lips but 
in their lives. 

Many more men are accepting the 
full demands of the Ministry of the 
Laity. We can no longer be detached 
from matters of community concern. 
Facing situations that call for action, 
we can no longer be heedless of the 
call to accept responsibility by say- 
ing: "Why don't THEY do some- 
thing?" When we come to understand 
that WE are THEY in this question, 
we are on the way to becoming respon- 
sible churchmen. Lethargy and indif- 
ference are the enemy. We cannot be 
the man to whom Edmund Burke re- 
ferred: "He waxed indifferently twixt 
doing them neither good nor harm." 

Our Diocesan set the theme for our 
work this year at the Laymen's Con- 
ference at Vade Mecum June 17, 18, 
and 19, 1966: "Nothing essential de- 
leted; nothing superfluous retained." 
Dr. Ernest Gordon, author and dean 
of the Chapel at Princeton University, 
was our conference leader. From the 
depth of his personal experiences, he 
led our consideration of "Man's Con- 
dition and God's Redemption." 

The presentation of the Laymen's 
Thank Offering through our custodian, 
Edward T. Mulvey, Jr., of St. Paul's, 
Winston-Salem, was made at this con- 
ference. Thirty-two parishes partici- 
pated. The funds were designated in 
equal portions for needs within the 
Diocese and outside the Diocese, as

Deficits, Needs Cited: 

Thompson Orphanage, Chaplains

Chairman, Department of Christian 
Social Relations 

The program for the Thompson Or- 
phanage continues to be broadened 
and to focus on children from broken 
homes who have more than average 

There is an emphasis on working 
with the whole family pointing toward 
the rehabilitation of the child. This 
involves a great deal of casework and 
increased costs. The Thompson Or- 
phanage finds that along with a more 
specialized work and inflation the sup- 
port from the Diocese remains about 
the same. This has caused a deficit 
of approximately $3,000 this year. 

The home in Goldsboro has been 
opened and there are now 10 children 
there, 10 children in foster homes and 
60 children on the campus in Char- 
lotte. Those in Charlotte hope to move 
into new facilities in the fall of 1968 
and plans are progressing rapidly in 
this direction.

Reporting the Penick House, E. H. 
Heyd writes as follows: 

"The role of the Penick Home con- 
tinues to change in the light of chang- 
ing times and needs for our older citi- 
zens. This has been a year of re-study 
and re-evaluation taking into account 
government programs and other fac- 
tors. It has been found necessary to 
raise the rates and to review admis- 
sion policies. This makes possible a 
more honest guarantee for future pro- 
visions for the members and also better 
provision for the operation of the 
Home on a sound financial basis. 

"The Mother's Day fund is being 
emphasized as this is used solely to 
underwrite the expenses of individuals 
who otherwise could not afford to stay 
at the Home. There are now 3 1 mem- 
bers at the Home, leaving just four 
vacancies at this time. However, the 
eight-bed infirmary will soon be em- 
ployed as a limited nursing home so 
that the Penick Home can be of greater 
service to our people. The directors 
are pleased to note the inclusion of the 
Home in the proposed budget of the 
Diocese both as an expression of Di- 
ocesan concern for this important work 
and also to meet a pressing financial

The Churchman 

Year-Round Stewardship Is Urged 

Chairman, Department of 
Promotion and Communication 

Your Department being responsible 
for the publishing and editing of the 
North Carolina Churchman is con- 
stantly striving to upgrade. and improve 
the quality of this official Diocesan 
news organ. Toward this end we wel- 
come and solicit all constructive criti- 
cism and suggestions because we feel 
that if the story of our Church in ac- 
tion is properly told it will help weld 
our people into the cohesive force 
that we should be. 

Under the able guidance of Ben F. 
Park, two successful workshops were 
staged for the benefit of parish can- 
vass chairmen who were instructed 
and inspired in the ways, means, and 
methods of conducting every member 

The Department has enjoyed ex- 
cellent cooperation with radio and tele-

ordinate the use of this media is 

Finally let me emphasize that all 
the so-called promoting and communi- 
cating whether through meetings, radio, 
TV, speaking, news sheets should be 
pointed to one end: To strengthen our 
sense of stewardship. 

And this must be cultivated on a 
year-round basis instead of the unfor- 
tunate habit of trying to educate peo- 
ple once a year at every member can- 
vass time. This latter practice is often 
as ineffective as the proverbial "cram- 
ming before final exam," and the re- 
sults are about the same. 

It is the hope of your Department 
that we can help direct the thinking of 
our people so they will be able to 
better translate the fullest meaning of 
stewardship into their daily lives which 
would result in total commitment of 
hearts, heads and not just half-hearted 
response to fund solicitation. (End) 

To Seven Congregations: 

N. C. Diocese Foundation Loans 
Total $102,000 For Fiscal Year 

President, N. C. Episcopal Church 
Foundation, Inc. 

The North Carolina Episcopal 
Church Foundation on October 31 
completed its best year of service to 
the Diocese since it was organized in 
1955. New loans were made to seven 
congregations in a total amount of 
$102,000. Net worth increased to 
$442,528 from $430,717 a year ago. 
The number of delinquent borrowers 
is now three, a reduction of one, and 
each of these made some payments 
during the year. No part of any loan 
has ever had to be charged off as a 
bad debt. 

The Foundation has always been 
fundamentally a Capital Improve- 
ment Revolving Loan Fund. Its pri- 
mary objective is to provide unsecured 
loans at low interest rates to assist 
congregations in building churches, 
parish houses and rectories earlier than 

. . . Organized in 1955 

they would otherwise be able to build 
them. The Foundation has the capa- 

bility of lending an average of ap- 
proximately $80,000 a year in liqui- 
dating 10-year loans. Interest charges 
are currently 3Vi per cent to parishes 
and 3 per cent to missions. The Foun- 
dation began making loans in 1956 
and has since made loans having a 
total face value of $533,500. 

Applications for loans are welcome 
provided they come from congrega- 
tions who are themselves providing a 
substantial portion of the funds re- 
quired and who have limited bank 
credit, strong local leadership and who 
indicate the intent and ability to make 
repayments as agreed. Obviously the 
Foundation can achieve its objective 
only by preserving its corpus which 
compels the directors to forego aid in 
some instances where aid is needed. 
Procedure information and loan appli- 
cation forms are available at Diocesan 

The directors have two regularly 
scheduled meetings each year. These 
are usually held on the second Tues- 
day in May and November. Financial 
statements are issued quarterly to each 
director. It is the hope of the directors 
that their stewardship of the funds en- 
trusted to their care is such that mem- 
bers of the Diocese will add to the

Take Responsibility Seriously: 

Examination Of Candidates 
For Holy Orders Explained 

. . . Quizzed in Six Areas 


Board of Examining Chaplains 

The task assigned to the examining 
chaplains by canon law is relatively 
simple. The chaplains (the number is 
not regulated by canons; the Bishop 
nominates to Convention as many as 
he sees fit, and asks for the approval 
of the Convention) have as their pri- 
mary duty the examination of those 
candidates for holy orders who are 
seeking ordination to the diaconate. 
These examinations are to cover six 
specified subject areas, but the nature 

Foundation by gifts and bequests. 

Comparable Statistical Hi-Lights for 
the years ended October 31, 1966 and 
1965 follow: 

and duration of the examination and 
the standards to be required are left 
to the discretion of the examining 

Beyond this primary responsibility, 
the examining chaplains must also re- 
port to the Bishop concerning their 
estimate of the academic qualifications 
of all postulants, before they begin 
their course of theological studies. 

The examining chaplains of the 
Diocese of North Carolina have a tra- 
dition of many years' standing, of 
taking their responsibility seriously, 
and so refusing to act simply as a rub- 
ber stamp for the seminaries who have 
trained the candidates. The present 
board, following the lead of its for- 
mer chairman, are seeking to estab- 
lish a continuing relationship with the 
postulants and candidates, from the 
time they are first accepted by the 
Bishop, through their ordination to the 
priesthood. The chairman interviews 
each prospective postulant before the 
Bishop takes final action on his appli- 
cation, and at that time the relation- 
ship of the chaplains to the postulants 
and candidates is explained. In Sep- 
tember of each year, the chaplains 
meet with all the postulants and can- 
didates, part of this meeting being a 
joint meeting with the Standing Com- 
mittee of the Diocese. 

At this September meeting, the ris- 
ing seniors are given their first set 
of formal canonical examinations. The 
chaplains having known these men 
and having been known by them for 
two years previous to this time, we do 
not meet as strangers, but as friends. 
Additional examinations are given to

For Teachers 
Dept. Project 

Department of Christian Education 

The Department of Christian Edu-

training event at Saint Andrew's 
Church in Greensboro. Nearly 200 
teachers and superintendents attended 
this all-day conference. 

At present, the Department feels 
that such a teacher training conference 
should be held annually and is work- 
ing towards one for next fall. In the 
immediate plans of the Department is 
a workshop for those congregations 
hoping to have a vacation church 
school this summer. 

Individuals on the Department of 
Christian Education have made them- 
selves available to congregations 
throughout the Diocese on a consulta- 
tive basis.

Clergy And Widow Pensions Now 
$2,160 And $1,440 Respectively 

Chairman Ex-officio, Committee on 
The Church Pension Fund 

The Church Pension Fund Com- 
mittee uses this opportunity to empha- 
size the importance of paying all pen- 
sion fund assessments as they become 
due. Regulations of the Church Pen- 
sion Fund provide that the immediate 
grant of $1,000 to widows cannot be 
paid after December 31 of each year 
until every parish in union with the 
Diocesan Convention has paid its 
proper pension assessments for at least 
six months of that year. 

As of November 15, 1966, the 
Church Pension Fund reported grants 
in force for the Diocese of North 
Carolina as follows: 

Clergymen (11), $25,554.36; 

Widows (21), $29,479.08; and 

ordination; however, at the same time, 
the chaplains assign the prospective 
deacon some additional work in that 
area which seems to them to be his 
weak spot, and he is assigned to one 
of the chaplains for supervision in fur- 
ther study in that area during his 
diaconate. In May of each year the 
chaplains meet with all the deacons, 
review the work assigned them during 
their diaconate, examine them in the 
reading and administration of the 
Holy Communion, and then, if the 
deacon is found satisfactory, recom- 
mend him to the Bishop for ordina- 
tion to the priesthood. 

During this past year, the examining 
chaplains met on June 14 and 15, and 
examined Messrs. James Abbott, Philip 
Byrum, Harold Payne, and Clay Tur- 
ner. All four men were found satis- 
factory in all fields, and were recom- 
mended to the Bishop for ordination 
to the diaconate. On September 1 and 
2, the chaplains met with all postu- 
lants and candidates, and examined 
Joseph Reed Nelson and Robert Lewis 
Williams, Jr.; both men passed the 
larger part of their Bible examination, 
including Greek, and part of their 
church history examination. Mr. Nel- 
son also passed part on his examina- 
tion in practical theology. As explained 
above, these men will be given fur- 
ther examinations in December and 
in June. (End) 

Orphans (4), $2,591.40. 

For the Church as a whole, the 
benefit totals were as follows: 

Retired clergy (1,103), $2,548,- 

Disabled clergy (131), $321,040.00 
Widows (1,622), $2,245,573.00; 

Orphans (315), $190,990.00. 

Included in the foregoing figures 
are increases, effective June, 1966, 
totalling $438,406 a year. These in- 
creases included a 2.8 per cent in- 
crease in all minimum pensions and 
children's allowances. The trustees 
of The Church Pension Fund are par- 
ticularly mindful of the need for off- 
setting the disadvantage the older pen- 
sioners have experienced from the 
shrinkage in purchasing power since 
they began to receive their pensions. 

The trustees have expressed the 
hope, "that next year and in subse- 
quent years every pension in force, and 
the minimum scale of pensions, may 
be increased on the order of 2Vi-3 
per cent. This is a means of offsetting 
the depreciation of purchasing power 
of the dollar which seems to be a 
continuing phenomenon." 

The normal minimum pension for 
the clergy is now $2,160 and for wid- 
ows $1,440 a year. The orphan's al- 
lowance is now $432 to $720 a year, 
depending on age bracket. Pensions 
below these figures are due to late 
ordination, unpaid assessments in in- 
active periods, very low salaries, very 
late marriage, deposition intervals, and 
some early retirement cases. 

The insurance and annuity facilities 
made available by the trustees through 
Church Life Insurance Corporation 
are widely used by the clergy and ac- 
tive lay workers and officials. The 
policies are a means, among other 
uses, whereby individuals may name 
their parishes as beneficiaries; par- 
ishes may build up endowments; par- 
ishes may provide pensions for their 
lay workers; dioceses and parishes may 
provide group life insurance for their

Diocese History 
In State Of 

Diocesan Historiographer 

In addition to working on the 
History of the Episcopal Church in 
North Carolina, my work has been 
confined to answering letters from 
clergy and laity requesting historical in- 
formation about various phases of the 
Church's life in this Diocese. 

It is a pleasure to report that one 
good parochial history has been pub- 
lished during the year. Miss Claudia W. 
Hunter has written an interesting ac- 
count of the Church of the Holy In- 
nocents, Henderson, North Carolina, 
1842-1965. It is hoped that her work 
will be an encouragement to other 
parish historians. 

In consequence of the several 
changes in the personnel of the His- 
torical Commission and the resulting 
delays in receiving chapters from the 
several authors, the Commission was 
unable to have the History of the 
Church published in time for the open- 
ing of the 1967 Diocesan Convention. 
The editorial work has been a much 
greater undertaking than was antici- 

It is the present hope and expecta- 
tion of the Commission to have the 
manuscript in the hands of a publisher 
by the spring of 1967. (End)

. . . Commission a Catalyst 

Worship Still 
Real Business 
Of The Church 


Chairman, Commission on Worship 
and Church Music 

Worship is the real business of the 
Church, our Bishop has reminded us. 
It is certainly true that when the 
Church attempts to be a social agency, 
or educator, or anything other than 
essentially a believing and worshipping 
community, it usually comes out a sec- 
ond-rate enterprise. 

Yet, there appears in many corners 
of the Church a real suspicion of seri- 
ous involvement with worship and li- 
turgical renewal. No doubt this sus- 
picion is justifiable if one sees liturgy 
only as "something non-essential, the 
hobby in the hands of dilettantes, the 
narcissistic ceremonialism of preening 

Liturgical concern, admittedly, has 
often been associated in the past with 
such misdirected efforts — efforts, 
however, that arose in reaction to the 
barrenness and emptiness of worship 
and in the urgent desire to fill up wor- 
ship in some way with meaning. The 
modern anthropologist has often stated 
man's continuing need for dramatic 
involvement in his relationship with 
God and with his fellow believers, 

man's need for meaningful liturgy. 

Happily, liturgical leadership no 
longer lies in the hands of the effete, 
if it ever really did. Rather, one is 
more apt to find the liturgical en- 
thusiast today on the forefront of social 
justice and public concerns. More and 
more the aim of the liturgical move- 
ment is the close wedding of life be- 
fore the altar and like in the market- 
place, where each permeates the other 
because each is really inseparable from 
the other. 

Liturgical renewal is essential to the 
truthfulness and wholeness of our 
Christian vocation today. The renewal 
of our theology, of our ethics, of our 
obedience to mission will be without 
real vitality unless there is a continuing 
renewal of our worship. 

"The liturgy must not become petri- 
fied, an end in itself, a performance, 
nor be self-^perpetuating. The forms 
must be elastic and mobile so that 
what was necessary yesterday in ser- 
mon, prayers, and hymns may be said 
differently today. At the same time, 
love for the congregation would indi- 
cate that the liturgical action be not 
only contemporary and understandable 
but also ordered and historically con- 
ditioned. This enables people to relax 
and be at home in the service. It is 
quite possible for old forms to ac- 
commodate ever new contents, pre- 
suming that they are transparent and 
resilient enough for the new contents 
to be convincingly shown." (See foot- 

This Commission is beginning to see 
its task to be the catalytic agency within 
the Diocese of North Carolina for the 
continuing renewal — at every level 
— of our worship, that focus from 
which the strongest and truest Chris- 
tian action can spring and that one to 
which it must inevitably return. (End)

Overseas Dept. Has A Busy Year 

Chairman, Department of 
Overseas Missions 

The Department of Overseas Mis- 
sion continued to operate during 1966 
under its stated purpose: "To encour- 
age parishes and individuals to par- 
ticipate actively in the worldwide mis- 
sion of the Church." Within the scope 
of that purpose, the department again 
chose to function primarily through 
the companion relationship with the 
Missionary District of Panama and the 
Canal Zone; but several actions were 
taken involving focus on an even wider 

In regard to Panama, the number of 
actions or programs were carried out 
during 1966. Bishop Fraser attended 
the dedication of the University Cen- 
ter at the University of Panama, and 
a deep companion relationship began 
between Christ Church, Charlotte, and 
St. Christopher's, Rio Abajo, Republic 
of Panama. 

Nineteen persons accompanied Bish- 
op Fraser on the first "Bishop's 
Mission Tour," arranged by Emmett 
Bryan of Charlotte, chairman of the 
department's Division of Laymen 
Overseas. These 19 persons investi- 
gated the work of the Church in 
Panama from the city centers to the 
backwoods mission outposts, and inter- 
preted North Carolina through three 
"North Carolina Day" programs for 
groups of Panamanian churchmen. 

Eighteen high school students from 
North Carolina accompanied The Rev. 
and Mrs. Kenneth Taber and the Rev. 
and Mrs. Phillip Cato on a six-week 
"Youth Mission Project" in Panama, 
during which they worked with and 
lived with young people and their fam- 
ilies from the companion diocese. This 
was a completely new element in the 
companion relationship, and it was 

point a correspondent for their service 
people, and we urge these correspon- 
dents to call on us whenever we can 
be of service. Surely, with the world 
situation as it is today, this is a most 
worthwhile part of the ministry of each 
of our churches. 

There still exist a drastic shortage 
of Episcopal chaplains in our armed 
services and your commission will be 
glad to answer, or obtain an answer 
to, any questions which interested 
clergy might have. (End) 

evaluated most positively by both 
dioceses and the people involved. 

North Carolina parishes and mis- 
sions responded with great generosity 
to the list of "Projects for Panama" 
prepared by the department's Division 
of Projects under the Rev. William 
Pilcher. Approximately $20,000 was 
contributed to these projects, even 
though there were some difficulties of 
communication and of changing pri- 
orities. A further list of 1966-67 pri- 
orities has been drawn up as follows: 

. . . Mission the Aim 

a. Completion of first unit of school 
at St. Christopher's, Rio Abajo, R. P. 
— $20,000 needed by Easter, 1967; 

b. Establishment of program fund 
for the University Center — $5,000; 

c. Completion of the "North Caro- 
lina Pavilion" at the Santa Clara con- 
ference center — $4,000. 

The Department, aside from the re- 
lationship with Panama, took part in 
mission action in other missionary 
areas of the Church. For example, 
the Department cooperated with Duke 
University in the Duke Mission Project 
to Nicaragua. The department gath- 
ered funds to support a nurse for six 
weeks at the Corn Island Medical Cen- 
ter, and contributed toward the total 
expense of this educational and medi- 
cal mission sponsored by Duke Uni- 
versity. The Rev. Bruce Shepherd, 
Episcopal Chaplain at Duke, was a 
leader of the mission group. 

Too, the department, acting under 
instruction of the Executive Council 
and with the advice of our national 
Overseas Department, chose to desig- 
nate the 1966 diocesan M.R.I, gift of 
$5,000 for project SEA/65/39A, to as- 
sist in purchase of land for the Church 
in Hong Kong, recognizing the stra- 
tegic situation and the desperate need 
of the Church in Hong Kong. The de- 
partment was happy to request that a 
clergyman of this Diocese might be 
official representative at the consecra- 
tion of the new bishop of Hong Kong, 
and has assisted in securing funds for 
the Rev. L. Bartine Sherman to repre- 
sent North Carolina there, taking our 
M.R.I, gift in person. 

As one of its major thrusts of the 
year, the Department of Overseas Mis- 
sion sponsored four seminars on mis- 
sion for parish leaders and four mis- 
sionary services during November. The 
Rt. Rev. Stephen F. Bayne, Jr., was 
brought to the diocese to lead in con- 
sideration of the total mission of local 
parish and mission churches. Bishop 
Bayne led seminars and preached in 
Rocky Mount, Greensboro, Charlotte, 
and Raleigh. 

Finally, the Department of Over- 
seas Mission has fulfilled its purpose 
during 1966 "to encourage parishes 
and individuals to participate actively 
in the world-wide mission of the 
Church." We expect to continue with 
the same purpose in 1967. (End)

Bishops Letter: 

Suffragan Bishop-Elect Preparing 
To Assume New Duties In Diocese 

The Convention is over. The Diocese has elected a very capable and trusted 
Priest to serve as the Suffragan Bishop of this Diocese. 

The Rev. W. Moultrie Moore has accepted his election and is now in process 
of taking his two separate medical examinations and we are waiting upon Con- 
sents from the Standing Committees of the Dioceses of the American Church, 
As soon as the Standing Committee receives a majority of approvals, they will: 
notify the Presiding Bishop, who will then give all Bishops of the American 
Church with jurisdiction an opportunity to vote on The Reverend Mr. Moore. 

In the meantime, the Suffragan Bishop-Elect has a great many things to do 
He and Mrs. Moore will be moving to Raleigh to assume his office in the 
Diocesan House. He will take time to become familiar with the staff and th< 
details of his new work. 

We know this will be a great loss to his parish and they will be waiting 
learn the date set for his consecration when he will terminate his rectorship 
that great congregation. 

We are all grateful to the Diocese for the sincerity in which they approaches 
this election, for the generosity and charity with which everyone dealt with thi;: 
matter and with the prayerful attitude in which The Rev. William Moultriii 
Moore was elected. 

As Bishop of North Carolina, I am greatly pleased. I feel deeply indebted 
to all the delegates to the convention. And, I look forward to my new relationship 
with a good friend, Moultrie Moore. 

Faithfully in Christ, 
Thomas A. Fraser 

Editor, The Churchman: 

The front page of The Morning Herald on Sunday, December 4, carried 
colorful picture of an Episcopal clergyman blessing the hounds for the Tria 
Hunt. Episcopalians everywhere can take heart that the country club image 
the Church is being preserved unruffled, in that the front page news of tt 
Church's ministry is the priestly blessing of the playthings of the wealthy for the 
ancient and honorable gory games. 

We have been moved by this spectacle to compose the following lines (to 
sung to the tune of "Bless This House"): 

Bless this hound, O Lord, we pray, 
As we go to hunt today. 
Gird him well to run the course, 
And swiftly lead the noble horse. 
Endue him with Thy special grace 
To flush Fox from his hiding place. 
Give him spirit for the fight. 
May he strike the fatal bite! 
Bless this Hunt, O Lord, that we 
May ever dwell in peace with Thee.

The ChurchiK 

Challenge, Excitement And Harmony 
Underpin 151st Diocese Convention 

Churchman Editorial Board 

Three things marked the 151st Annual Convention of the Diocese of North Carolina, held at St. Paul's Church, 
Winston-Salem, on January 31 and February 1, 1967. They were: 

The challenge set forth in Bishop Fraser's address to be sensitive, enlightened servants to mankind; 

The excitement of the election of the Rev. Wm. Moultrie Moore to be the suffragan bishop of the Diocese; 

The general air of satisfaction and harmony with which it went about looking after the business of the Diocese. 

CONVENTION PHOTOS— The above photograph of some in attendance at 
the Winston-Salem convention was made by Mrs. Margaret Darst Smith, a mem- 
ber of the Churchman Editorial Board. Mrs. Smith also made the pictures ap- 
pearing on the cover, page 8 and on page 12. 

"The Christian Church has before 
it one of the greatest challenges of 
this century," Bishop Fraser said in 
his opening address. "This challenge 
is to survive and to be a sensitive and 
enlightened servant to mankind in the 
name of Jesus Christ. Simply to sur- 
vive is not enough, we must serve. 
It will be in our serving that we will 
survive." Then he went on to make 
suggestions for "unifying and strength- 
ening the church in this Diocese." Some 
of the subjects he dealt with were 
clergy salaries, mission quotas, dioce- 
san structure, small parishes, lay or- 
ganizations, and finally a statement 
concerning the church and political 
and social issues. He concluded "I pray 
that each one of us will lay to heart 
his part in the life of the church, using 
all of our resources to meet this chal- 
lenge. ..." (For full text of address 
see page 4.) 

! The election of the suffragan bishop 
(occupied the entire second day of the 
convention. The regular business was 
concluded with the evening session on 
[Tuesday. The Rev. Mr. Moore's elec- 
tion came on the seventh ballot. His 
(was one of 15 names placed in nomi- 
jaation. An account of the election and 
h. box score of the balloting will be 
pund on Page 5. A story about Mr. 
Moore himself is on Page 7. 
|| The regular business of the conven- 
tion was dispatched with speed and 
I harmony. Among the first orders of 
jmsiness was the unanimous final pas- 
Sage of the amendment to the constitu- 
tion allowing women to serve as dele- 
gates to the diocesan convention. This 
liction was begun at the 1966 con- 
tention and was completed as required 
|y canon law at this time. Final action 
Plowing women to serve on vestries 
; |nd mission committees was completed 
pst year. Later in the session a reso- 
lution was adopted memorializing the 
i General Convention to allow women 

to become eligible as delegates to that 
body. This and several other amend- 
ments and canonical changes as out- 
lined in the pre-convention report by 
the Committee on Constitution and 
Canons were passed. Henry C. Bourne 
is chairman of that committee. 

Resolutions passed by the conven- 
tion included the following: 

One asking amendment to the North 
Carolina Statutes providing absolute 
protection to a minister with regard to 
revealing confidential communications 
in courts of law (full on Page 10); 

One asking amendment to existing 
laws to the effect that alcoholic con- 
trol laws permit the individual to ex- 
ercise his own moral convictions in the 
social use of alcohol (full text on Page 

One asking that the Bishop appoint 
an ad hoc committee or commission to 
appraise the roles of support and man- 
agement that this Diocese should pro- 

vide for educational and health institu- 
tions and report these to the next 
convention; , 

A resolution changing the days of 
the convention to Fridays and Satur- 
days beginning in 1968, but not chang- 
ing the late January date. (It previ- 
ously has been held on Tuesdays and 
Wednesdays. No place has been set 
for the 1968 convention); and,

Challenge To Survival Is Voiced 
By Bishop In Convention Address 

Editor's Note: Following in full 
is the address by The Rt. Rev. 
Thomas A. Fraser, Bishop of the 
Diocese, at the Annual Conven- 
tion held at Saint Paul's Episcopal 
Church, Winston-Salem. 

My Brothers in Christ — 

The Christian Church has before it 
one of the greatest challenges of this 
century. This challenge is to survive 
and to be a sensitive and enlightened 
servant to mankind in the name of 
Jesus Christ. Simply to survive is not 
enough, we must serve. It will be in 
our serving that we will survive. To 
measure up to this challenge will not 
be easy. It will demand hard work, 
sacrificial giving and a solid commit- 
ment to our Lord. 

For the past eighteen months, I have 
visited in every nook and cranny of 
the 39 counties which comprise the 
Diocese of North Carolina. In this Con- 
vention address, I want to share with 
you some of my observations and re- 

I believe in the Institutional Church 
and in the Parish Ministry. I am com- 
mitted to unifying and strengthening 
the Episcopal Church in this Diocese. 
If this is to be accomplished, some 
radical changes are necessary. Some 
of which I have already set in motion 
and some of which have been referred 
to our Committee on Long Range 

After consultation with the Finance 
Committee and the Diocesan Council, 
I have referred to the Departments of 
Missions and College Work and the 
Business Manager the need for one 
payroll for everyone who is employed 
under the Church's Program budget. 
We have had in the past as many as 
four payrolls. At the last meeting of 
the Diocesan Council, I asked this same 
committee to produce a job descrip- 
tion for every person who is employed 
by the Diocese. This will enable each 
person to know what he should be 
doing and what the Diocese may ex- 
pect from him. The Church's Program 
is one. People are employed in vari- 
ous capacities and at different loca- 
tions to carry out that Program. Each 
person employed by the Diocese 
should be serving the cause of Jesus 

Christ in this Diocese. There should be 
no differences in salary scales, or the 
status of a person employed, if he 
works hard and is strong in his com- 
mitment to the Church and to his 
Saviour and is effective in carrying 
out this work. 

There will be a report later in the 
Convention which will speak to the 
subject of stewardship and the new 
Partnership Principle. In the meantime, 
I have suggested another look at this 
Church's Program Quotas for Missions 
which receive Diocesan aid. In order 
that I may be clear, let us use the 
following illustration — if a Mission 
has a Church's Program Quota of $1,- 
500 and it receives $1,000 in aid from 
the Diocese, I have suggested for study 
that the $1,000 Diocesan aid be with- 
drawn and the Church's Program 
Quota be reduced to $500. Our pres- 
ent practice is taking money out of one 
pocket and putting it into another 
which takes away from the Mission 
Churches, their dignity and sense of 
responsibility, and does not encour- 
age them either towards financial sta- 
bility or self-support. 

The Diocesan Committee on Long 
Range Planning has been asked to 
look at the decision-making processes 
of the Diocese. At the present time, 
apart from the Diocesan Convention, 
there are five decision-makers in the 
Diocese, The Diocesan Council, The 

Standing Committee, The Truste 
The Episcopal Foundation, and The 
Investment Committee. The left hanc 
does not know what the right hand is 
doing or why. Each of these decision- 
makers is confronted with establishing 
policy, principle, and program, with- 
out the benefit of the thinking and 
planning of the other groups. We are 
in effect, between our Conventions, 
splintered in our decision-making, frus- 
trated, defensive and geared to pre 
vent quick and progressive action. In 
some cases, membership of these de- 
cision-making agencies is a waste of the 
time and talent of its personnel. At no 
time between Conventions, do these 
groups meet together to take a look at 
the big picture in order that the best 
thinking and all of the resources off 
the Diocese might be brought to bean 
on a common problem. Therefore, 
have requested that the Long Range 
Planning Committee study the de-; 
cision-making processes of this Diocesei 
with the hope that instead of five; 
there may be one decision-maker be- 
tween Conventions made up of experi-, 
enced lay and clergy personnel of the 
Diocese, which will not be cluttered) 
with a lot of committees who wondei| 
what their purpose and function are,i 
but who will draw upon the whole lay! 
and clerical membership of the Diocese 
for ad hoc tasks and assignments. Wei

Churchman Editorial Board 

The excitement and tension in St. 
Paul's Church, Winston-Salem, on 
Wednesday morning, February 1, 
1967, was a palpable thing. 

It was the morning of the day on 
which the Rev. William Moultrie 
Moore, rector of St. Martin's Church, 
Charlotte, was chosen from a slate of 
15 candidates to be Suffragan Bishop 
of the Diocese of North Carolina. 
1 All day Tuesday, during the regular 
lousiness of the 15 1st Annual Conven- 
tion, the excitement had run quietly 
[under the surface, speeding the tempo, 
pasting a side trivia. But on this morn- 
pg it was evident everywhere. It 
(showed in the eagerness with which 
Ithe delegates assembled. It was notice- 
jable in the contrast of excited conver- 
sation and the quick break into in- 
tense silence, and in the lively display 
pf interest in everything that happened, 
f The nominating speeches opened the 
Session. An hour and a half of them 

. . five minutes each for nomina- 
pons, a half-minute each for a second 
J . . served only to increase the tension. 

Fifteen names were placed in nomi- 
nation. Of these, 13 had been sent to 
ipe nominating committee in advance. 
They were: The Rt. Rev. Scott F. 
Bailey, suffragan bishop of the Diocese 
If Texas; the Rev. James D. Beck- 
jvith, rector, St. Michael's, Raleigh; the 
{Rev. Thomas E. Bollinger, rector, 
jioly Comforter, Burlington; the Rev. 
john H. Bonner, Jr., rector, St. Paul's, 
Chattanooga, Tenn.; the Very Rev. 
« Robert W. Estill, dean of Christ 
t purch Cathedral, Louisville, Ky.; the 

Rev. Jon M. Gessell, assistant to the 
dean, University of the South, Sewa- 
nee, Tenn.; the Rev. Charles R. 
Greene, director of program, Diocese 
of North Carolina, Raleigh; the Rev. 
Carl F. Herman, rector, St. Andrew's, 
Greensboro; the Rev. Ralph H. Kim- 
ball, rector, St. Andrews, New Or- 
leans, La.; the Rev. H. Colman Mc- 
Gehee, rector, Emmanuel Church on 
the Hill, Alexandria, Va.; the Rev. 
John C. Mott, rector, Grace Church, 
Colorado Springs, Colo.; the Rev. L. 
Bartine Sherman, rector, St. Philip's, 
Durham; the Rev. Martin R. Tilson, 
rector, St. John's, Charlotte; the Rev. 
O'Kelley Whitaker, rector, St. Luke's, 

The names of the Rev. Mr. Moore 
and the Rev. Floyd W. Finch, rector, 
Holy Comforter, Charlotte, were pre- 
sented for the first time from the floor. 
The name of Mr. Tilson of Char- 
lotte was not presented. He had re- 
cently left the Diocese to become rec- 
tor of a church in Alabama. 

The names of the 15 nominees, writ- 
ten on a tally sheet, were shown on a 
large white screen in the chancel by 
means of an opaque projector. 

The ballot boxes — four small boxes 
of shiny brown wood, much like minia- 
ture cedar chests — were brought in. 
Two were placed at the front of the 
church, one for parishes and one for 
mission churches. Two were placed at 
the rear for the clergy. A member of 
the committee on Credentials and Elec- 
tions stood guard at each box. 

Bishop Fraser called for the floor to 
be cleared of all save certified dele- 
gates. Only a single row of members of 

the press were allowed to remain on 
the floor. Other visitors were banished 
to the balcony. At each door to the 
church someone was posted as guard. 

Then came the call for the balloting 
to begin. Each of the clergy and one 
delegate from each parish and mission 
filed to the secretary's desk at the front 
of the church to receive a small brown 
envelope. In these were the ballots — 
blue for clergy, yellow for parishes and 
pink for missions. 

The slips for the first ballot were 
marked. The delegates again filed to 
the front and to the back of the church 
to place them in the boxes. Then at 
the call for the close of the first ballot 
each teller carried his box to the count- 
ing at the right of the chancel. 

During the quarter of an hour it 
would take to count the ballots the 
Bishop explained to the congregation 
the technicalities of the' election proc- 

To elect a suffragan, he explained, 
the vote would be against the regis- 
tration. It would be against not only 
the total registration, but each house 
— clerical and lay — against its sepa- 
rate registration. The registered clergy 
totaled 104 and the lay vote totaled 
64%, or one vote for each parish 
and one-quarter vote for each mission 
registered. To be elected a candidate 
must receive on one ballot a majority 
in each house, or 53 clerical and 32V2 
lay votes. 

Finally, a bit shy of the expected 
time, the Rev. Warwick Aiken, elec- 
tions chairman, slipped quietly through 
the chancel and brought in the report 
on the first ballot. Audibly and col- 
lectively the congregation caught its 
breath as the Bishop prepared to read 
the results. 

On the first ballot, however, the 
votes were well scattered across the 
board. Estill, Greene, Herman, Moore, 
Sherman and Whitaker all had good 
support. On the second and third bal- 
lots most of the out-of-staters were 
dropped, with Estill alone remaining 
of these. (See box with tally sheet). 

Somehow as the tellers brought in 
the results of the seventh ballot every- 
one knew there was an election. And 
as the name of the Rev. Mr. Moore

Text Of Beverage Resolution 

Here is the full text of the resolution adopted during the Winston-Salem 
Convention on the use of alcoholic beverages: 

"Whereas, the availability of alcoholic beverages is a reality of our cur- 
rent mores, and 

"Whereas, the existing laws of North Carolina governing the control of 
the distribution and consumption of alcohol have been recognized as im- 
practical within our social environment, and 

"Whereas, the temperate use of alcohol has been declared by the Joint 
Commission on Alcoholism of the General Convention to be in keeping 
with the doctrinal principles of the church. 

"Be it resolved, that this 151st annual Convention of the Episcopal Dio- 
cese of North Carolina requests the 1967 North Carolina General Assem- 
bly to amend or revise existing laws to the effect that alcoholic control laws 
will permit the individual to exercise his own moral convictions in the 
social use of alcohol in a dignified and responsible manner. 

"And further that a copy of this resolution be sent to the Chairman of 
Committee on Propositions and Grievances of the General Assembly by the 
Secretary of this Convention." 


(Continued from page 4) 

must not only be faithful stewards of 
our money but with the time and tal- 
ents of people. It is our responsibility 
to deploy the manpower, which in- 
cludes women, of this Diocese in such 
a way that we may be as strong and 
as effective as is humanly possible in 
the challenge before us. 

One of my great concerns as I 
travel about the Diocese meeting al- 
most every day and every night with 
clergy, lay people, young people, 
and vestries is the small parish — the 
small self-supporting parish. When a 
parish becomes so small that it takes 
three-fourths of its budget to support 
the clergyman — then there is only 
one-fourth of the budget for Diocesan 
assessment, quota, utilities, insurance, 
and the tools necessary to do the work 
of the Church's program. It seems to 
me that this parish is either a victim 
of complacency, that has designed a 
small club of like-minded people 
which will die, or it is destined to 
unite with a near-by existing work in 
order that it may have funds for the 
necessary part of its program which is 
work outside of its own congregation. 
Any congregation which keeps its eyes 
turned inward toward itself is doomed 
to sudden death. We can no longer 
maintain monuments to our glorious 
past, but we must be men of God on 
the go in the present and in the future 
for the benefit of „our fellowman. 

This brings me to the subject of 
clergy salaries. There is no way to de- 
termine a clergyman's salary except 
by the law of supply and demand. The 
usual question is, "How cheap can we 
get one?" A clergyman is not like a 
salesman who gets a base salary and 
a commission. He has no standard by 
which he can prove his worth or mea- 
sure his production. It is true that he 
knows this when he enters the minis- 
try. If he doesn't, then he becomes 
disillusioned and probably ineffective. 
It used to be that a clergyman lived 
on the free-will gifts of his congrega- 
tion. This made him a victim of 
patronage. As long as he was a good 
little boy and didn't muddy the waters 
or rock the boat, people would give 
him a gift at Christmas or keep his 
ice-box filled with food. He might even 
get a free membership to the Club 
where he could play golf when he had 
nothing else to do. This not only 
stripped the clergyman of his dignity, 
it dehumanized his family and in es- 

sence made him an ineffective leader. 
This day has passed. The needs of a 
clergyman and his family are no dif- 
ferent from any other family. The 
needs of a family are determined by 
their education, the number of people 
in the family, the cost of living, and 
physical necessities. It is not reason- 
able or theologically sound for any- 
one to expect the Holy Spirit to make 
up the difference — and in some 
places a great difference exists be- 
tween the salary of a young man gradu- 
ating from college and that which 
a man receives after twenty years of 
service in ministry of the Church. The 
number of men leaving the ministry 
for secular work in order to meet re- 
spectably the needs of their family is 
rapidly increasing every year. In 1965, 
67 percent of the congregations of this 
Diocese spent less than $10,000 on 
convent expense which includes salaries 
of clergyman, Sexton, music (and in 
some cases, Christian education), altar 
guild, lights, water, heat, telephone, 
office supplies, car and rectory allow- 
ance and insurance premiums. This 
makes it almost impossible for a small 
congregation to afford a full time 
clergyman and to keep themselves out- 
ward bound in the name of the Chris- 
tian Gospel. We do not solve this ques- 
tion by asking another — "Wasn't he 
called by God to serve?" Every hu- 
man being is called by God to serve 
regardless of his station in life. We 
should serve God no matter what we 
do and this service is no excuse for 
salaries inadequate to the needs of a 
man and his family. 

A part of the Church's program that 
demands immediate attention is the 

work of the Episcopal churchmen and 
the work of the Episcopal churchwom- 
en. It seems to me that it is time for 
this work to be either unified or abol- 
ished. It is well known that the women 
provide a support to the Church for 
which we are all grateful and without 
which we would be in trouble. It is 
also well known that what the church 
has in manpower it does not need in i 
endowment. However, at the present 
time, the separated work of men and \ 
women has ceased to be attractive to j 
new people coming into the church. 
It is also well known that attendance \ 
at separated men's meetings and worn- j 
en's meetings is rapidly decreasing. In j| 
every other walk of life, men and j 
women work together as adults to face j! 
the common problems before them. \ 
Why should it not be the same in the 
Church? The work of the women has js 
a great deal to contribute to the men 
and the men have a great deal to 
contribute to the women. Joined to-i 
gether, they could produce program, 
resources, and power for the Church, r 
It is obvious that it is not possible } 
separated. If it is not possible united, 
then maybe both organizations need 
to take a good look at themselves and 
either realign what they are doing or 
disband. It is my hope that at this 
Convention you will pass on the second 
reading a canonical change which will 
permit women to become members of 
this Convention. This will be a step in 
the right direction. Further, I ask the 
leadership of both groups to come to 
grips with the fact that one-half of the \. 
population of the United States is un- | 
der 28 years of age. This one-half in- jL

The Chui 

Inside Look At New Suffragan-Elect 
Shows A Man With Talents For Job 

Churchman Editorial Board 

The name of W. Moultrie Moore, the rector of St. Martin's, Charlotte, was 
the last to be introduced in the long list of nominees for suffragan bishop of the 
Diocese of North Carolina; and the speech which placed it in nomination was 
probably the shortest and least effusive. 

He was not among the 14 candidates whose names had been formally sub- 
mitted prior to the convention. Moore had told friends he would prefer that his 
name not be offered; and if they had been reluctant to risk his being promoted 
away from their community, their fears were well justified. 

"All of you know Moultrie Moore," 
said the Rev. Thorn Blair, of Christ 
Church, Charlotte; and there was little 
else that needed to be said. 

Delegates to the 151st Annual Con- 
vention, meeting in Winston-Salem at 
St. Paul's on February 1, left no doubt 
that Blair had spoken truly. In the 
spirited voting Moore gained steadily 
as the field of 15 candidates nar- 
rowed. At the fifth ballot only Moore, 
Bartine Sherman of Durham and Carl 
Herman of Greensboro were in seri- 
ous contention. Moore pulled ahead 
decisively on the seventh ballot, ac- 
counting for 63 clerical votes and 
lay votes. 

The excitement which followed fo- 
cused on a gray-haired man of mod- 
est frame and manner who said he 
felt "like I've been struck by a tor- 
nado." In a brief, emotion-filled ap-

] St. Martin's parish, which appears to 
jpossess an unique proclivity for fur- 
nishing talent to the hierarchy, has 
had three rectors and all of them have 
ascended directly to the bishopric. First 
fhe Rev. John L. Jackson was elected 
bishop of Louisiana. The succeeding 
Rector, Albert Cole, became bishop of 
Ppper South Carolina. And now Moul- 
trie Moore. 

. . . New Face At Diocesan House 

Moore became rector of St. Martin's 
at a time when he was badly needed, 
for the parish was beginning to suffer 
the symptoms which since have become 
all too familiar to downtown churches, 
particularly those whose congregations 
have moved to the suburbs. In a day 
when many have been struggling to 
hold their own, St. Martin's has en- 
joyed impressive, sustained progress. 
Total communicants have increased 
from about 750 to nearly 1,000, and 
the church plant has expanded 

"Moultrie Moore has brought about 
more unity of thought and purpose 
than any rector we have ever had," was 
the estimate of a St. Martin's vestry- 
man; "I don't know how we will ever 
replace him." 

His fellow clergymen speak of Moore 
as an impressive preacher and a dedi- 
cated pastor. Said one of his parishio- 
ners, "Moultrie is one of the finest in- 
dividuals I have ever known. He is the 

kind of man you can talk to and feel 
that he's talking to you." 

Another appraisal : "he is a nan who 
gets things done in a quiet way"; and 
certainly St. Martin's has responded 
fruitfully to his ideas for "a task- 
oriented, servant church." Among cur- 
rent projects of the parish are two 
tutorial programs, one at the diocesan 
orphanage in Charlotte, and another 
at a junior high school attended largely 
by Negro students. In addition, St. 
Martin's has a day care center which 
keeps children after school hours. 

Although he adheres to traditional 
formalities of worship — and is, per- 
haps, more "high church" than aver- 
age — Moore is receptive to new 
ideas, and is not afraid to push against 
old lines when they stand in the way 
of a promising innovation. 

Recently St. Martin's has undergone 
an intensive self-study program to es- 
tablish priorities and activate M.R.I, 
at the parish level. 

As a result the parish has under- 
taken drastic reorganization to set up 
"study groups" and "service groups," 
and to unify the work of its laymen and 
laywomen. The idea of de-segregating 
"men's groups" and "women's groups" 
— although not unanimously favored 
by the congregation — is expected to 
give new focus and effectiveness to 
the role of parish service in the com- 

This bit of pioneering is being 
watched closely by a number of other 
churches, and some have been encour- 
aged to launch similar moves. 

Moore also sees clearly the benefit 
and necessity of working with other 
churches and denominations in com- 
munity service. He has taken a leading 
role in the Charlotte Council of Inter- 
church Action. With local Presbyteri- 
ans his parish is participating in an 
experimental program among juveniles 
in the slum areas of the city. In an- 
other youth program they are involved 
with Baptist, Methodist, and Presby- 
terian v congregations. 

Among other long-standing civic in- 
terests he is a Rotarian, past presi- 
dent of the Salisbury club and cur- 
rently a director of the North Charlotte 
Rotary Club. 

Moultrie Moore's service and lead- 

february 1967 



ership has been no less conspicuous at 
the diocesan level. He served on the 
Executive Council, 1948-51 and '54- 
'61; Examining Chaplain, '46-'59; 
Deputy to General Convention, '52- 
'58; Chairman, Department of Mis- 
sions, '56-'57. He is immediate past 
chairman of the Standing Committee, 
which now must handle the final mat- 
ters of his election. 

He also has served for 12 years as 
trustee for his seminary, General Theo- 
logical Seminary, New York. 

Following Moore's election in Win- 
ston-Salem, Bishop Thomas A. Eraser, 
Jr., who had asked for the assistance 
of a suffragan bishop, expressed his 
hearty approval of The Convention's 
choice. "I have known Moultrie for a 
long time," he said; "I really felt guilty 
when I was elected because I thought 
he was the one who should have been 

Someone observed that the two men, 
Eraser and Moore, each with some 
marked differences of personality and 
temperament which complement the 
other, will comprise an ideal leader- 
ship team for the diocese. 

Moore will bring proven — and well- 
known — qualities of dedication, wis- 
dom, experience, and understanding 
to the office of suffragan bishop. He 
is a man who is easy to know, whom 
people respect and like equally. 

William Moultrie Moore, Jr. was 
born in Mount Pleasant, S. C. in 1916, 
the son of William Moultrie Moore 
and Jennie Verdier (Edmonston) 
Moore. He attended Porter Military 
Academy, in Charleston, S. C, and 
received his B.A. Degree from the 
College of Charleston in 1937. 

Moore reckons his preparation for 
church service from the age of about 
12, when he served as an altar boy 
at Emanuel Episcopal Church in 
Southern Pines, N. C. He received his 
STB from General Theological Semi- 
nary in New York City in 1940. 

Back in South Carolina the follow- 
ing year he married a lovely girl he'd 
been going with "since she was one 
year old, and I was two." She was 
Florence Muirhead Porcher, also a na- 
tive of Mount Pleasant. Both of them 
are lifelong Episcopalians. 

The family now includes three 
daughters. Jennie, age 23, is a Rich- 
mond, Va. public school art teacher; 
Caroline, 20, is employed in Charlotte 
at Cato's; and Ann, 18, is a student 
at Mitchell College in Statesville. 
Moore's mother lives at the Hawthorne 

. . . Shown After Voting 

Nursing Home in Charlotte. 

In the early years of his ministry 
Moore served as minister-in-charge at 
St. Albans at Kingstree, S. C, St. 
Luke's at Andrews, St. Stephens at St. 
Stephens, and a mission at Rhems, 
S. C. 

The young minister came to the 
Diocese of North Carolina in 1942 to 
serve as rector at the Church of The 
Epiphany, in Leaksville, and at St. 
Thomas', in Reidsville. In 1944 he 
became rector of St. Luke's, Salisbury, 
where he continued until 1952, when 
he was called to serve at St. Martin's 
in fast-growing Charlotte. 

Despite the rigors which beset a ser- 
vice-minded pastor in North Carolina's 
largest city, he has occasionally found 
time . to pursue a couple of hobbies 
which date back to his boyhood in the 
coastal low country of South Carolina. 
He is an avid fisherman and loves 
boating. Some happy hours have been 
spent on Lake Wiley, near Charlotte, 
where he has a small sailboat. Friends 
who have sailed with him — or against 
him in amateur racing competition — 
say he handles the boat expertly. 

Another quality for which Moultrie 
Moore is well-known — and one which 
will serve him well in his new office — 
is his keen sense of humor. 

One story he tells on himself is of a 
fruitless afternoon when he was fishing 
on the Catawba River. After a long, 
patient spell during which the fish had 
refused to bite, he was about to weigh 
anchor and move to other waters. 

Just then a convivial boatload of 
fishermen, obviously in their cups, hap- 
pened by. And they had fish — lots of 
fish. When the bibulous party came 
alongside to compare catches, Moultrie 
had to confess he'd caught nothing. 

They told him, "Brother, you just 
ain't been living right." 

Of the 15 clergymen nominated for 
suffragan bishop, Moultrie Moore was 
probably the one who least sought the 
office. As he left home for the con- 
vention Mrs. Moore asked him about 
the possibility of his election, and he 
replied, "No, I don't think The Lord 
would treat me that way." 

If Moultrie Moore is reluctant to 
leave the parish where he has labored 
so effectively, it is because he feels he 
is just now beginning to find out some 
of the best ways to serve it. He feels 
that he may have learned a few of the 
answers to problems of a downtown 
parish at this critical time — but only 
a few, he says. There is so much more 
to be done. 

The challenge will be magnified a 
hundredfold as he gears his rare qual- 
ities of leadership to meet problems 
and inspire a quickened pace for The 
Lord's work at churches throughout the 
broad Diocese of North Carolina. 

It is a challenge which he cheer- 
fully accepts and looks forward to with 
enthusiasm and complete dedication, 
which is the only way Moultrie Moore 
has ever — or could ever — accept a

Sidelights On 151st Convention: 

Business-Like Tone Prevails 
At Diocesan Family Gathering 

Churchman Editorial Board 

Yes, Virginia, there really is a Di- 
ocese of North Carolina. And you can 
tell your little friends that it is more 

for new missions, college work, insti- 
tutions and M.R.I. 

Elections of clergy and lay members 
to various committees and boards of 
the Diocese went on all during the day. 
Included were new members of the 
Standing Committee; Trustees of the 
Diocese; Diocesan Council; Trustees, 
University of the South; Trustees, St. 
Mary's School; and Directors of Home 
for the Aging. Results of these elec- 
tions will be found on Page 14. 

The new clergy who have come to 
the Diocese since last year were intro- 
duced and welcomed by the Bishop. 
They were Charles M. Riddle, III, at 
Calvary, Tarboro; Charles Morrison 
at Christ Church, Albemarle; Clay 
Turner at Christ Church, Rocky Mount 
and St. John's, Battleboro; James Ab- 
bott, St. Paul's, Thomasville; Harold 
Payne, Christ Church, Walnut Cove 
and St. Philip's, Germanton; Philip 
Byrum, St. Michael's, Tarboro, St. 
Mary's, Speed, and Grace, Lawrence; 
Howard Hickey, Holy Trinity, Greens- 
boro; James Walker, industrial coun- 
seling in Greensboro; William Robert 
Merrill, Winston - Salem, chaplain- 
cy; Carlton Morales, the Redeemer, 
Greensboro; and Ellis Nathanial Por- 
ter, St. Titus, Durham. 

Following the close of business 
of the convention John B. London of 
Charlotte presented a resolution of 
courtesy thanking the host church for 
its splendid hospitality. The Rev. Dud- 
ley Colhoun is rector, the Rev. C. Lloyd 
Lipscomb, assistant. William D. Hobbs 
was general chairman for the conven- 
tion, and George B. Whitaker, vice 
chairman. Other committee chairmen 
were Henry P. Glenn, Paul Fulton, Jr., 
Mrs. George Taylor, John G. Medlin, 
Jr., Robert T. Ellett, Jr., Mark Boesser, 
Henry A. Badgett, Austin H. Carr, 
Kim T. Speer, F. O. Carver, Mrs. John

The 151st was strictly a business- 
men's convention. There was little 
color in St. Paul's cathedral-like in- 
terior, apart from the dark red altar 
hangings and brilliant blue windows. 

With the exception of a few odd 
ladies of the press and Mrs. W. H. R. 
Jackson, President of the Churchwom- 
en, in her attractive peacock blue suit 
and hat, women and other observers 
were banished to the balcony to tend

sunshine yellow outfit, provided a 
cheerful splash of color among this 

ECW Retreats 

Episcopal Churchwomen are of- 
fered two retreat opportunities this 
year. The Rev. Charles Greene, 
director of program for the Dio- 
cese, directed a one-night retreat 
February 18-19. Planned pri- 
marily for working women it was 
also open to women who find the 
week-end a more convenient time 
to be away from home. 

This retreat began with lunch 
at noon on Saturday and closed 
with lunch on Sunday. The cost 
was $10.00. 

The Rt. Rev. James W. Mont- 
gomery, bishop coadjutor of the 
Diocese of Chicago, will direct a 
two-night retreat March 7-9. The 
cost is $15.00. Further notice of 
this one will be given in the next 
issue of THE CHURCHMAN. 

Both retreats were scheduled at 
the Terraces in Southern Pines 
with payment due on arrival there. 
Any woman desiring to attend 
should contact the secretary of de- 
votional life in her own branch of 
the Episcopal Churchwomen or 
write directly to Mrs. W. D. Hol- 
loman, Jr., diocesan secretary of 
devotional life. 

Her address is 1110 Church St., 
Scotland Neck. 

Downstairs a business-like atmos- 
phere prevailed. From Tuesday's 
opening prayers to the final amen on 
Wednesday afternoon, Bishop Fraser 
rode herd on the seemingly endless 
flock of reports, resolutions and bal- 
lots with a "Head 'em up, move 'em 
out" spirit. . . . "I'm giving you five 
minutes, boys — better get ready with 
the budget!" 

He kept things rolling through the 
first day, not with a whip, but with 
wry comments and tongue-in-cheek hu- 
mor. On the second morning the whip 
was a stop-watch. Nominating speakers 
who waxed eloquent beyond the five- 
minute time limit found themselves 
cut short by a rapping of the episcopal 
ring against the Bishop's microphone. 

As they rumbled down the agenda 
trail, members of the convention were 
sometimes at a loss to keep their place. 
As one delegate said to his companion 
in the pew, "I missed most of that . . . 
where have we gotten to now?" "We're 
through!" was the reply. 

The session came to a rather noisy 
climax Tuesday evening in the heated 
debate which erupted over the liquor 
resolution. The issue brought many to 
their feet in a vehement display of 
feeling, both pro and con. 

The Rev. Peter Robinson, St. Fran- 
cis, Greensboro, said, "We're more ex- 
cited about this (than other subjects 
such as stewardship). . . . I'm sorry, 
but we are." His further remarks . . . 
"The church must be a real part of 
the warp and woof of the 20th cen- 
tury. . . . Here is the opportunity to 
say 'Religion is so much more than 
don't do this and don't do that'. . . . 
We have to say something now" . . . 
brought spontaneous applause from the 
pro side. 

Those on the opposing side, attempt- 
ing to table the motion, generally 
seemed to agree with Samuel Pierson, 
Jr., of Enfield, who said, "I am wholly 
in accord with this resolution, but I 
don't think it should come from the 

As the motion was carried by a nar- 
row margin, the Bishop made plain his 
displeasure with the behavior of his 
flock. He remarked in a chastising 
tone, "I'm sorry, but I disagree with 
all of you, including the people who 
are against it." 

After a respectful silence during the 
reading of memorials by the Rev. Wil- 
liam Price, St. Mary's, High Point, and 
the closing prayers, the unsheepish 
sheep headed out into the balmy night,

still arguing in two's and three's. 

Although the 151st did not march on 
its stomach like Napoleon's army, the 
needs of the inner man were well at- 
tended to. Delegates entering by the 
back door of St. Paul's towering, multi- 
levelled structure were greeted by a 
welcoming odor of coffee from the 

Refreshment tables, covered with 
green cloths and decorated with boun- 
tiful baskets of shiny red apples and 
pine boughs, were well patronized 
throughout the convention. Mrs. John 
Winder's Refreshment Committee 
members seemed always ready with 
home-made brownies and mouth-water- 
ing Moravian sweet buns, warm from 
the oven. The apples were for eating, 
too, they said. 

And if you showed further interest 
in the subject of food, Mrs. Eva Ek- 
vall, a native of Germany and gradu- 
ate of the famous French Cordon Bleu 
school, was on hand with her own 
cookbook of international foods, en- 
titled "The Proof of the Pudding." 

Lunch time brought an ecumenical 
note. While half the delegates ad- 
journed to eat in St. Paul's dining 
room, Host Rector, the Rev. Dudley 
Colhoun, Jr., led the other half on a 
short walk downhill to eat at Augsberg 
Lutheran Church. The Pastor there 
turned out to be the Rev. Ray Fisher, 
whose brother is an Episcopal clergy- 
man — the Rev. Earl Fisher, of Ad- 
vent Church at Enfield. The Lutheran 
ladies smilingly served a man-sized 
ham dinner with all the trimmings on 
long tables graced by tall, gold-painted 
candelabra, topped with white can- 
dles and English ivy. 

For anyone with a spare moment 
to wander during convention proceed- 
ings, St. Paul's offered some added at- 
tractions ... a spectacular view of 
the city from the high windows at the 
rear of the parish house, a glimpse 
of a quiet walled courtyard, dressed 
in muted wintry greens, and a hall of 
fascinating and colorful displays. 

Among these were many excellent 
black and white and color photographs 
of activities in the various Winston- 
Salem churches, the Penick Home, mis- 
sion churches in the major North Caro- 
lina cities, St. Christopher's at Rio 
Abajo in Panama, and the new hospi- 
tal at Kathmandu, Nepal. The Church 
Army displayed large and amazingly 
detailed maps of city population dis- 
tribution, prepared by Captain Osborne 

Prayer Event 

The Tenth Annual Conference 
of the Anglican Fellowship of 
Prayer will be held at St. Paul's 
Church, Richmond, Virginia, on 
April 14 and 15. The co-hosts for 
this conference are the Dioceses of 
Virginia, Southern Virginia and 
Southwestern Virginia. 

A leadership preparation meet- 
ing for the workshop leaders of 
that conference was held on Janu- 
ary 20 and 21 at the home of Mrs. 
Samuel M. Shoemaker in Steven- 
son, Maryland. 

Representatives from about one 
dozen dioceses (principally from 
the dioceses of Province III) will 
include the Rev. Don James, Pitts- 
burgh Experiment; Mrs. Polly 
Wiley, prayer and worship chair- 
man of the Second Province; Mrs. 
Robert Gibson, wife of the Bishop 
of Virginia; the Rev. Moulton 
Thomas, field representative-at- 
Iarge of the AFP and formerly the 
chaplain of Trinity College, Hart- 
ford, Connecticut, and some time 
rector of Christ Church, Balti- 
more; and the Rev. George T. 
Cobbett, rector of St. Timothy's 
Church, Catonsville and field rep- 
resentative of the AFP in the Dio- 
cese of Maryland. The 25 con- 
ferees will examine and discuss in 
depth what it is to be a good work- 
shop leader. 

The conference in Richmond 
will have as its keynote speaker 
the Rt. Rev. Frederick H. Wilkin- 
son, D.D., bishop of the Diocese 
of Toronto, Canada, who will give 
two meditations on "Prayer in Life 
and Liturgy." Workshops will be 
held on both Friday and Saturday 
afternoons on the following topics: 
1) Types of Prayer Groups; 2) 
Spiritual Life and Personal Disci- 
pline; 3) Overcoming the Barriers 
to Prayer; 4) Clergy-Laity in 
Prayer Groups; 5) Why Pray? (for 
young people); 6) Seminar on 
Prayer and Action; 7) Wholeness 
in Prayer; 8) Listening Prayer; 9) 
Group Prayer and Preparation for 

For the smooth running of the 151st 
Bishop Fraser commented the Rev. 
Dudley Colhoun, William D. Hobbs, 
general chairman, and Scourby Elling- 
ton, business manager of St. Paul's. 
Jack London, St. Peter's, Charlotte, in 

the resolution of courtesy, gave thanks 
to the congregation of St. Paul's and 
"to the Good Lord for the sunshine 
and warmth." 

If your name was Moultrie Moore, 
the sun was definitely shining for you 
on Wednesday, February 1. Although 
all the candidates were obviously well- 
qualified for the office, and the Rev. 
Mr. Moore had told his wife earlier 
that he didn't think "the Lord would 
treat me this way," he certainly "came 
on strong" from the first ballot. 

The day's business began with the 
flash of a newsman's camera as the 
Bishop took his seat. It continued 
through the hours in alternating waves 
of noise and quiet. 

There was the excited buzz of con- 
versation, the clatter of wooden kneel- 
ers being lowered, then the Bishop's 
quiet voice reading from the Book of 
Common Prayer. . . . "Come, Holy 
Ghost, our souls inspire. . . ." Then 
came laughter as D. E. Hudgins, Chair- 
man of the Special Committee on 
Nominations, began, "After the issue 
last night, I know you'll be pleased 
with a completely non-controversial 

Amid intermittent coughing, shuffl- 
ing of feet and the whirr of a movie 
camera, nominating speeches ran the 
gamut from flowery to laconic. Oc- 
casional flashes of humor brought grins 
and guffaws from the assembly. 

The Rev. Robert Davis, Holy In- 
nocents, Henderson, spoke for the Rev. 
O'Kelley Whitaker. . . . "Of course 
Kelley has his faults — even some 
bishops have been known to make mis- 
takes — mostly in other dioceses!" 

Roger Gant, Jr., Holy Comforter, 
Burlington, nominated the Rev. Gene 
Bollinger. ... "I am not going to extol 
his moral character. . ! . We're not 
trying to unload him, either!" Hobart 
Steele, also of Burlington, seconded 
the nomination of Bollinger. . . . "He 
is the sole surviving Episcopal minis- 
ter in Alamance County!" 

Election excitement grew with the 
noisy trooping of delegates up the 
stone-floored aisles to drop their blue, 
yellow and pink ballots in the four 
cedar boxes, and tense silences while 
results of the voting were read. Low 
whistles and murmurs were hears as 
the Rev. L. Bartine Sherman, St. Phil- 
ip's, Durham, piled up an impressive 
number of votes. 

There was a muffled groan when 
the Rev. Moultrie Moore came within

eludes married men, women and their 
children. As your organizations now 
exist, you will phase out as the present 
members die. Seize this opportunity to 
realign your forces and engage the 
most exciting minority of the United 
States — those people under 28 years 
of age. There is no mission facing the 
world-wide Church that is any greater 
than attracting and enlisting the youth 
of the world for Christ. 

This brings me to the last observa- 
tion of eighteen months of personal 
study of this Diocese. There is in the 
Diocese as in the whole Church a real 
division between those laymen, as well 
as clergy, who feel that the Church 
should participate directly in the po- 
litical and social struggle and those 
laity and clergy who feel that the 
Church should not do so. There seems 
to be some confusion as to where I, 
the Bishop of this Diocese, stand. As 
Bishop of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina whose authority comes from the 
House of Bishops and the whole 
Church of laity and clergy, I am a 
"company man." I am not about to 
lead any segment of the Church in 
rebellion against the whole Church nor 
to give comfort to anyone who desires 
to do so. May I be specific about four 

First, the matter of race. No Chris- 
tian Church can exclude from its mem- 
bership any person because of an act 

W2 votes of winning on the sixth bal- 
lot. After the first few ballots it had 
become not so much a question of 
who, as of how long it would take. A 
group of observers had a 25c pool 
going among themselves, and one of 
them was heard to say, "It'd be nice 
if we could find a Christian around 
here to hold the money!" 

After the final ballot, there was no 
money in evidence, but an apparently 
well-satisfied multitude of Christians 
rose to sing lustily the Doxology, while 
Mr. Moore came forward into the glare 
of TV floodlights. Obviously moved, he 
told the hushed crowd, "I feel like 
I've been struck by a tornado. . . . 
I hope in some way I shall prove 
worthy of your trust." 
I He was thereafter engulfed by re- 
porters, and the delegates hurried to 
sign the petition formally requesting 
him for their Suffragan Bishop, before 
leaving for home and the business of 
their everyday worlds. (End)

of God's creation. God created all that 
exists and He s>aid — "It is good." 
No Christian Church can act in a man- 
ner that would be contrary to God's 
will, which would be to set apart, seg- 
regate, or to grant inferior member- 
ship to any creation of God. May I 
say, for the record, that this has nothing 
to do with the Supreme Court. And 
even though this happens to be in 
keeping with the Canons of the 
Church, it has nothing to do with any 
man-made law. This is the law of God. 
Our Lord said, "Come unto me all 
ye" — and He meant "all." As He 
hung on the cross with outstretched 
arms, He called all men unto Him- 
self. This is a matter of Christian wit- 
ness to the doctrine of creation and 
to the Gospel which we profess. There 
can be no exclusion of any race from 
any area of the Church's life. 

Second, the National Council of 
Churches. I had never heard of the 
National Council of Churches until I 
came to North Carolina. I have 
learned that it does a lot of things 
that are good, which would not be ac- 
complished in any other way, and for 

which each one of us can be grateful, 
and as Christian people should give 
our whole-hearted support. It likewise 
does some things with which I am in 
full disagreement. The basis of my dis- 
agreement is theological and in the 
areas of strategy and judgment. As I 
understand the National Council of 
Churches I disagree with its doctrine 
of the Church and what it conceives 
to be the nature, function and mission 
of the Church as they are revealed in 
some of the Council's actions. How- 
ever, the good that it does far out- 
weighs anything with which I disagree. 
The National Council of Churches does 
witness to Jesus Christ for you and for 
me in places where this witness would 
never be borne and where it is essen- 
tial that it be borne in this day when 
the world is in revolution and Church 
membership is declining. But further, 
as long as the whole Church decides 
to remain a member of a council of 
churches known as the National Coun- 
cil of Churches of Christ. I will thor- 
oughly disagree with the Council when 
I disagree, but I will not be a party to 
the withholding of funds from the Na- 

Februory 1967

tional Council of Churches or rebel- 
ling against the action of the House of 
Bishops and our General Convention. 

Third, Viet Nam. I can only hope 
and pray that someone, somewhere, 
knows the answer to this tragedy. I 
am not a military strategist. The 
Church is not geared to design the 
program for winning a war or even 
maintaining a peace. As an American 
citizen, I understand this action to be a 
war of containment. I do not have the 
information and I am not wise enough 
to challenge those to whom we have 
entrusted the leadership of our nation. 
Every knowledgeable human being is 
convinced that war is the incarnation 
of all evil and no sane person would 
choose war as an alternative if there 
were any other recourse. As a citizen, 
I have a right to ask questions, to 
sign resolutions, and to use any other 
means available to an American citi- 
zen, to encourage the leaders of this 
nation to use every means in their 
power, to bring this war to an honor- 
able and just conclusion. As a Chris- 
tian churchman, it is incumbent upon 
me to pray for this nation, for our 
leaders, for those who are serving in 
our Armed Forces, for those who are 
making decisions about our Armed 
Forces and to pray for those who are 
cast in the role as enemies of this 
nation. It seems to me that this is a 
clear-cut Christian imperative. 

Fourth, Section 14B. It is my firm 
conviction as a Christian Theologian 
that the Church must encourage its 
members to be active participants in 
all the affairs of the state as intelligent 
Christian citizens. The Church is con- 
cerned with all of men and all of life, 
at all times and all places. At the 
same time the Church as a Church 
must not identify itself with a par- 
ticular political party, candidate, or 
specific act of legislation. The reasons 
for this are several. One is the same 
for including all people in the mem- 
bership of the Christian Church. It is 
our function to overarch the differ- 


ences of all people and not to identify 
with any particular class, nation, race, 
or power structure. As a Church we do 
not have the knowledge, nor are we by 
nature political realists. We never have 
in our hands all of the facts involved 
in political and legislative decisions. 
The closed shop which is encouraged 
by Section 14B is a political strategy 
used by labor just as management has 
its strategy and ownership has its 
strategy and the consumer has 
his strategy. There is also in the sup- 
port of the closed shop an indirect 
support of what is known as a "Sweet- 
heart Union," whose strategy is to 
manipulate management, owner, con- 
sumer and labor. This is a struggle for 
power among Christian and non-Chris- 
tian people. If the Church is to over- 
arch all of these people in their dif- 
ferences just as it does the differences 
of war and hate, then the Church must 
declare a Gospel of love and recon- 
ciliation, deploring injustice and un- 
righteousness wherever they are found, 
keeping us always mindful of those 
who suffer from hunger, lack of hous- 
ing, education, and equal opportunity. 

No Christian person can ever find 
rest or peace as long as any one per- 
son or any group of persons suffer 
from the injustice or the oppression of 
another person or group of persons. 
No Christian person can hold his po- 
sition to be right as long as his position 
brings unjust hardship and suffering 
to another. The differences that divide 
us are differences as to how peace, 
good will, honesty, truth, righteous- 
ness, justice, equal opportunity are to 
be made available to all men every- 
where. There are those in this Diocese 
who feel that the Church should be 
directly involved in the political and 
social struggle. There are those who 
feel just the opposite, that there should 
not be this involvement. 

It is my understanding of my role 
as Bishop, to which I am committed, 
that I am to strengthen and unify the 
Church in this Diocese so that we may 
be able with the best of our ability, to 
meet the challenge of the present and, 
also, to be able to survive on the long 
haul. It is very easy to forget the 
present by looking into the past or the 
future. It is very easy to forget the 
future by being obsessed with the pres- 
ent or the past. The Church is con- 
cerned with the total scope of history 
— the past, the present, and the fu- 
ture. We cannot become obsessed with 
any one part of it. We must give our 
lives to all of it under God with a 
sincere commitment of love to our fel- 
lowman and to God. 

As a personal aside, many of the 
programs of the Church might be more 
attractive to the people outside of the 
Church if these controversial areas 
could be discussed in the Church which 
is the last place in history that I know 
of where men can come together in 
their differences. If, under God, we 
could study these problems of life in 
the light of the Christian Gospel, could 
share our differences, learn from one 
another, support one another, express 
the love and reconciliation of the Chris- 
tian Gospel, then the Church might 
become an alive agent of God's re- 
deeming grace in history. 

These are my observations, the ac- 
tions which I have inaugurated, and a 
few goals which I present for your 
consideration. I pray that each one of 
us will lay to heart his part in the life 
of the Church, using all of our re- 
sources to meet this challenge to sur- 
vive and to be a sensitive and en- 
lightened servant of all mankind. It is 
only in this way that the Church in 
this Diocese in the present and in the 
future can live in Holy obedience to 
her Lord, Jesus Christ. (End)

ment of that Diocese together with 
Bard College. Running from January 
15 to 27, the institute focused first 
on "Forces Working for Cultural and 
Theological Change," and in the 
second week on "The Job of the Parish 
and the Role of the Priest" in such 
change. A faculty of prominent speak- 
ers from all over the country served 
the 400 clergy of that Diocese in this 

sissippi, Oxford. His new address is 
St. Peter's Church, Oxford, Miss. 

Marriage — Announcement has been 
made of the marriage of the Rev. John

A Masterpiece 

of Beauty and Color 

The beautiful rose window of the 
Cathedral of Notre Dame, a work of 
infinite beauty and splendor, is per- 
haps the masterpiece of all art glass 
windows. Built in the Thirteenth Century, 
it stands today unsurpassed in beauty and 
excellence of workmanship. If a world-wide 
search were made for a monumental ma- 
terial approaching the beauty of the as- 
sembled colors of the famous Rose Window, 
such material would be found in 


"The Silk of the Trade" 

It is found, also, that the 
beautiful colors of Winnsboro 
Blue Granite come from the 
various crystals it contains 
which are identical in substance 
to many of the finest of preci- 
ous stones and jewels of the or- 
der of the amethyst and moon- 
stone. When the surface of this 
granite — which is a composite 
of these actual precious stone 
crystals — is highly polished, all 
the scintillating beauty and 
color of these jewels become 

Winnsboro Blue Granite is 
most lasting because it is corn-

posed of the most durable min- 
erals known. 

Like other high quality ma- 
terials there are many inferior 
substitutes which resemble this 
granite on first appearance, but 
do not possess its durable quali- 
ties and lasting beauty.

To Baltimore — The Rev. C. Waite 
Maclin, rector of St. Joseph's, Dur- 
ham, has gone to Baltimore, Mary- 
land, where he will be assistant to the

Spitler is vicar. 

Burials — The Vestry of St. Mary's 
Church, High Point, has passed on

following a later second reading this

each to be marked with a small bronze 

Wood Cut — High Point's new mis- 
sion, St. Christopher's, has received 
from the Rev. Frederick Koch, pastor 
of Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic 
Church of that city, a copy of a 14th 
Century wood cut of St. Christopher 
bearing the Christ Child. The wood 
cut was given to Father Koch as 
an ordination present by a Roman 
Catholic Monk, Dom Odo, Duke of 
Wurtenburg. The Rev. Ben Wolverton 
is priest-in-charge. This bit of infor- 
mation comes from "St. Christopher's 
Log," Volume 1, No. 1, attractive and 
interesting monthly new letter of the 
mission. Noted as ship's clerk for the 
Log is Posy Gorman, with Bill Gor- 
man listed as first mate. 

In New York — Another of our men 
who has been asked to join a group 
of laymen who will meet with the Pre- 
siding Bishop, for a series of special 
conferences is Thomas J. Pearsall of 
Rocky Mount. Purpose of these meet- 
ings is to explore and analyze with the 
laymen the purposes, accomplishments 
and failures of the church as the Body 
of Christ. This comes from "The Shep- 
herd's Horn," weekly newsletter of 
Church of the Good Shepherd, Rocky

the new rectory and participate in the 
blessing of the rectory. At St. James, 
Kannapolis, the Rev. Harry Woggon 
and his family held their second an- 
nual open house for the congregation

Moravian Anthems — During 1966 
the choirs of St. Paul's, Winston-Salem, 
have sung several Moravian anthems 

in honor of the 200th anniversary of 
the founding of Salem by Moravians. 
The early Moravian composers, ac- 
cording to the St. Paul bulletin, fos- 
tered in Pennsylvania and North Caro- 
lina a rich musical culture because they 
were convinced that music in worship 
was an important means of glorifying 
God and edifying man. Among those 
was Francis Hagen, born in Salem in 
1815, pastor and musician, with 
"Morning Star," written in 1836 as 
his best known piece. It is used for

manuel Church, Warrenton, to St. 
Peter's, Talladega, Alabama. Capt.

ville, and St. James', Iredell County, 
to the Diocese of Texas.

Each received the Bishop's Award 
which was presented for the first time 
at the 1966 convention. 

Among those receiving the award 
was the family of the late Emmett 
Wren Bryan of St. John's at Char- 
lotte. A convention resolution stated 
the scope of the late Mr. Bryan's ser- 
vice to the Church as follows: 

"Be it resolved that the 151st Con- 
vention of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina acknowledge with deep sympathy 
the death of Emmett Wren Bryan on 
Monday, December 19, 1966. As one 
of the founding men of St. John's 
Episcopal Church, Charlotte, he con- 
tributed greatly to the spiritual growth 
and development of this parish. His 
impact on the Diocese was felt 
through his work with the Department 
of Overseas Missions and in particu- 
lar his efforts in behalf of the ex- 
tension of our relationship with the 
companion Diocese of Panama. 

"Respected and admired by clergy 
and laity, his dynamic personality at- 
tracted and motivated individuals to 

action. He was truly a man about his 
Father's work."

The history of the Church of the 
Good Shepherd begins on December 
19, 1873, when several members of 
Christ Church in Raleigh withdrew to 
establish a "free" Episcopal Church in 
Raleigh. At that time, Christ Church 
rented its pews, a practice followed by 
many other Episcopal churches in those 

The Rev. Edward R. Rich of St. 
Paul's in Clinton was called as the 
first rector of the new church. He con- 
ducted the first service on Feb. 15, 
1874 in Tucker Hall (now Ivey's 
store) on Fayetteville Street. On Feb. 
26, the 31 members of the original 
group organized, electing a vestry and 
appointing a building committee. The 
new parish was admitted to the Diocese 
at the annual convention in May, 

Services were often held in the Hall 
of the House of Representatives of 
the Capitol until the first building, a 
frame structure, was completed in 
1875. The cornerstone of the present 
Church was laid during the Silver Jubi- 
lee celebration in 1899, but the build- 
ing was not completed until May 17, 
1914. The original church then be- 
came the parish house, and is still in 
use today as All Saints Chapel and 
class rooms. The Church was conse- 
crated on March 27, 1921. Since then, 
a large Parish House addition was con- 
structed in 1954 and the parking lot 
has been added. 

The Church of the Good Shepherd 
has been active in the establishment 
of St. Michael's and St. Mark's, both 
in Raleigh, and has sent 15 members 
into the ministry or mission fields. 

As a "downtown" church, it draws 
parishioners from all areas of the city 
and surrounding communities, and to- 
day has over 1,300 members. 

The Convention, with the theme of 
"Continue In The Faith," will have 
the Rev. Anselmo S. Carral as the 
featured speaker. He will tell of his 
work as chaplain of the Episcopal Stu- 
dent Center at the University of 
Panama. Panama has been our corn-

Bishop Hines' Easter Message 

Editor's Note: Following is the Easter message of Presiding Bishop 
John S. Hines. 

On January twenty-seventh the nation was shocked and saddened by the tragic 
death of three astronauts as they rehearsed for the first Apollo flight. The im- 
mediate reaction was to raise the question, "Is it worth this? Should we not put 
an end to the space thrusts now before even more young men are lost?" Several 
months before, one of the astronauts who died had said: "If we die, we want 
people to accept it. We are in a risky business and we hope that if anything 
happens to us it will not delay the program. The conquest of space is worth 
the risk of life." 

At the foot of the Cross, and outside the heavily barricaded tomb on that 
first Good Friday the tiny band of Jesus' followers asked themselves the hard 
questions, "Is this not the place to stop? In the light of the brutal crucifixion is 
not the cost too great. If death marks also the end of him, as it has thus far 
marked the end of all others, has not human hope been voted down by the powers 
of darkness?" 

Human ingenuity coupled with a certain relentless pursuit deeply seated within 
the spirit of men can give adequate reply to the doubts and anxieties raised over 
the moon quest by the costly death of the astronauts. For answers can be found 
to the as yet partial equations which delay progress in the realm of human 
knowledge. But only God could give the answer to the grieving queries of the 
few who stood bereft and comfortless before the death of man's purest hope, 
Jesus called Christ. And answer God did! The answer rolled away the stone! 
The answer emptied death of its ultimate content and the tomb of its most 
valiant and obedient body. The answer shook the earth around Jerusalem trans- 
mitting tremors throughout the world. "He is risen," the answer proclaimed. 
"Death cannot hold him — nor any in whom his spirit dwells!" 

Well, the astronauts were right. What they were, and are, engaged in is risky. 
And all who see the Christ-event for what, in reality, it is — God loving mankind 
and the Cross impaling that love-know about the dimensions of risk. The Cross 
attests to the reality of the peril. The Resurrection cannot remove the peril. The 
Cross shows us how risky it is to respond in faith to God's love. The Resur- 
rection guarantees that it is worth the risk!

Bishop Delaney Portrait Is Unveiled 

. . . Great Granddaughter of Bishop 

St. Augustine's College dedicated 
two new buildings recently at Raleigh 
as part of its centennial celebration 
and convocation. 

Another feature of the observance 
was the unveiling of a portrait of 
Bishop Henry B. Delaney who served 
as suffragan of this Diocese from 1918 
to 1928 under Bishop Joseph B. 
Cheshire. The portrait now hangs in 
Diocesan House at Raleigh. 

The new girl's dormitory honors the 
Rt. Rev. Richard H. Baker, former 
bishop of the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina. The new men's dormitory was 
named in honor of R. L. Lynch, long 
time professor of French at the college. 

The college's centennial banquet 
was addressed by Hobart Taylor, Jr., 
director of the Export-Import Bank in 
Washington. He told the capacity audi- 
ence that "The need for education is 
growing dramatically — and so is the 
need for the kind of special services 
St. Augustine's has performed." 

Taylor said that people must face 
the fact that "many people still have 
not recognized that the proper de- 
velopment of our human resources is 
indispensable to our future as a na-

world's smallest minority — the edu- 
cated man. 

Taylor said St. Augustine's College 
will train young people for "the ca- 
pacity for discovery, handling ab- 
stracts, pursuing ideas." These will take 
the role formerly held by those who 
possessed precious metals, raw ma- 
terials and sources of energy, he con- 

Dr. P. R. Robinson, acting presi- 
dent of the college presided at the 
ceremonies. It was reported that alum- 
ni, friends and organizations had given 
some $93,000 to the school's centen- 
nial fund drive. 

The Rt. Rev. Daniel Corrigan, 
president of the American Church In- 
stitute, preached the centennial wor- 
ship service in the college chapel. 

One does not have to remain long on 
the campus of the St. Augustine's Col- 
lege, to realize that something impor- 
tant is going on. 

Arthur Ben Chitty, president of the 
Association of Episcopal Colleges, de- 
scribes the scene: "There is the quality 
of singing in the air without audible 
tunes. The students and teachers are 

friendly — a big family. There is an 
atmosphere of striving, of trying to do 
a lot with a little. The buildings, a 
score of them, look rather good, but 
not like Princeton's. 

"Queries fail to reveal statistical con- 
firmation of what one senses is true, 
namely that this institution wages a 
battle — slowly being won — against 
nearly all the handicaps that educa- 
tion is heir to." 

This small college, which has an 
enrollment of 900 for the 1966-1967 
academic year, was made possible by 
the legacy of a Methodist minister, and 
became the principal thrust of the Epis- 
copal Church for work among Negroes 
in the South following the Civil War. 
Chartered at Raleigh in July, 1867, 
St. Augustine's College received its first 
four students Jan. 13, 1868. 

In 1866 the General Convention of 
the Episcopal Church named the Rev. 
J. Brinton Smith, then rector of St. 
Matthew's Church, Jersey City, N. J., 
and head of an industrial school for 
children of the poor, as executive di- 
rector of the Freedmen's Commission 
of the Episcopal Church. With limited 

March 1967 


funds at hand, Mr. Smith concluded 
that education of former slaves, then 
perhaps 95 per cent illiterate, was of 
first importance and to this end Negro 
teachers would be necessary. The 
church could best concentrate its ef- 
forts, he felt, on teacher education of 
Negro men and women because the 
supply of white teachers would not be 

The Commission incorporated his 
ideas With its own and the next decade 
saw not only the establishing of St. 
Augustine's but also the sending into 
southern dioceses of about 60 teach- 
ers who taught as many as 4,000 Negro 
students at one time. 

Progress continued and in 1925 the 
first class of six graduated from the 
newly opened junior college. Enroll- 
ment at St. Augustine's exceeded 500 
and the President, the Rev. Edgar 
Henry Goold, announced plans for a 
four-year college. That same year the 
Bishop Tuttle School for religious and 
social workers was opened. Although 
it closed in 1941, the Bishop Tuttle 
School made an important contribution 
to the life of the institution, awarding 
60 diplomas in 16 years, most of them 
to students who had entered as college 

By 1928 "College" was formally 
added to St. Augustine's name; in 1930 
it received a Class I rating from the 
American Medical Association for the 
premedicine course; in 1931 the first 
12 bachelor of arts degrees were given; 
and finally in 1934 came accredita- 
tion from the Southern Association of 
Schools and Colleges. 

The first Negro president of St. 
Augustine's, Dr. Harold L. Trigg, was 
elected in 1947. The Trigg administra- 
tion saw vast changes at the College 
with funds coming from the United 
Negro College Fund; the General Edu- 
cation Board; Episcopal Advance 
Fund; National Council; Danforth 
Foundation and National Science 

"Today," Dr. James A. Boyer, son 
of the first dean, teacher, dean and 
now recently retired as president of St. 
Augustine's, said, "the majority of our 
graduates (48 men and 109 women 
in 1965) go into teaching. North Caro- 
lina now produces more Negro teach- 
ers than it can use. We want to in- 
crease the percentage of our graduates 
going into other fields so that, as su- 
pervisory-level opportunities open for 
them in industry, St. Augustine's alum- 
ni will be ready. Dr. Boyer attributes 

. . Part of 2 1/2 Million Dollar Fund Appeal 

the high ratio of women to men gradu- 
ates to the fact that the Negro has had 
a matriarchal society since slavery 

About 65 per cent of the college's 
graduates enter the teaching profes- 
sion; 20 per cent go into government 
service, industry, public and private 
social service; and the remaining 15 
per cent directly to graduate and pro- 
fessional schools on graduation. It is 
significant that more than 33 per cent 
of all Negro priests in the Episcopal 
Church are graduates of or attended 
St. Augustine's and the institution has 
provided preprofessional training to 
a large number of physicians, dentists, 
lawyers and social workers. 

As St. Augustine's stands on the 
threshold of its second century it is 
headed by Dr. Prezell R. Robinson, 
executive dean and professor of so- 
ciology, who was named acting presi- 
dent on May 24, 1966 by the Rt. Rev. 
Thomas A. Fraser, Bishop of North 
Carolina and chairman of the board 
of trustees. 

Before his retirement, Dr. Boyer 
candidly outlined the problems faced 
by this college. "Upward surging fac- 
ulty salaries in North Carolina state 
colleges have outstripped our budget 
limitations. Good people are leaving 
us, many reluctantly, for 50 per cent 
increases. Similarly we are outbid for 
top students. Once we got our share of 
the very bright Negro high school 
graduates, the ones whose presence 
changes the chemistry of the under- 
graduate body, but now all of these 
are lured away to big universities by 
scholarships we cannot match. Finally 

we need to dispel the idea — kill it 
for good — that the formerly Negro 
or the predominently Negro college has 
outlived its usefulness. For the fore- 
seeable future we will provide a haven 
for the disadvantaged student, and by 
the time lower schools have smoothed 
out inequities we will have improved 
sufficiently to compete on even terms 
with the pacemakers. Today we can 
say with both modesty and assurance 
that we are among the top 25 per cent 
of formerly Negro colleges. Tomorrow 
we can be among the top 25 per cent 
of all colleges. With effort, prayer, 
dedication, and the help of our Church 
and our sister Episcopal colleges, we 
can do this." 

When one can't cite Rhodes Schol- 
ars, Fulbright winners, large endow- 
ments-per-student, percentage of PhDs 
on faculty, high standing in surveys, 
how can dramatic accomplishments be 

One answer is to look at the alumni. 
Dr. Bertha Richards, nearly blind, dic- 
tates every year a communication to 
the girls who studied under her at St. 
Augustine's in the department of social 
work and religious education. Her news 
notes for 1965 speak for themselves. 

Lorna Hodelin, 120 Duke Street, 
Kingston, Jamaica, is active in a Home 
for Girls, a School for Deaf and Blind, 
a Children's Hospital, a Clean-Up 
Campaign, the World Refugee Fund, 
Hurricane Relief, and she has recently 
raised $3,500 toward a home for the 
elderly. She writes, "Had it not been 
for my training at St. Augustine's, I 
would never have been able to under-

Mattie Thomas Beason, 1015 S.

Vermay Battle Garner, 257 Living- 
ston Avenue, Babylon, New York 
writes, "I am glad that I can help (my

in the pathway of life what an un- 
happy world this would be. Life is giv-

Folk Mass — The celebration of Lent 
got off to an auspicious and unusual 
start at Good Shepherd, Rocky Mount, 
with a Folk Mass at the 11 o'clock 
service on the first Sunday in Lent. 
Called, "'Rejoice," the mass was judged 
"an exciting and moving experience. 
In no way was reverance sacrificed to 
joy! The rector marks it a high point 
in his ministry; reservations of par- 
ents and grandparents melted as the 
voices of the young people rang out 
— making the Communion service truly 
the Eucharist, feast of thanksgiving." 
This was quoted from The Shepherd's 
Horn, parish newsletter. The Rev. 
Charles Penick is rector. Assisting him 
with the celebration was the Rev. Her- 
bert Tucker of Chapel Hill. Four young 
guitarists accompanied the choir of 
Episcopal Young Churmen. The Epis- 
toler, the Gospellers, the ushers, and 
the acolytes were all young people of

ested. Just write to the rector or Mrs. 
Mildred Draper, director of Christian

rist in February, at which the whole

parish family to gather at one service 
on these special occasions."

As is customary at each Diocesan 
Convention a detailed response to the 
address of the Bishop is presented. 

The special committee on the Bish- 
op's address at this year's convention 
included: Thomas J. Pearsall, Good 
Shepherd, Rocky Mount, chairman; 
J. Emmett Sebrell, Christ Church, 
Charlotte; George Hamer, Holy Trini- 
ty, Greensboro; Dr. Seth Warner, 
St. Luke's, Durham; and the Rev. 
Floyd W. Finch, Holy Comforter, 

Quoted below are the main points 
of the report of this committee: 

"His address constitutes an inspir- 
ing challenge to serve. We commend to 
the whole body of the church in this 
Diocese the admonition of our Dioce- 
san that to survive we must serve." 

On structure: "We recommend that 
the Bishop appoint a representative 
from each of the five decision making 
bodies to sit with the Long Range 

Planning Committee to consider the 
question of coordination, communica- 
tion and expeditious handling of the 
church's business. . . . We feel that 
fundamental changes in the structure 
of the Diocesan organization for the 
sole purpose of efficiency should be 
carefully studied and considered be- 
fore the old structure is destroyed." 

On small parishes: "We are pleased 
that the Bishop continues to be con- 
cerned about the problem of the small 1 
parish. We accept the proposition that 
consolidation of small and weak par- 
ishes in small or rural communities 
might be the solution to budgetary or 
other problems. ... We cherish the 
hope, however, that with God's help 
we can find a way by which the Chris- 
tian faith can be spread through the 
parish church in small and rural com- 
munities as is done by our sister 
churches and faiths." 

On lay organizations: "We recognize 
that neither the men or women of the 
parishes and missions of the Diocese 
are adequately carrying out the 
Church's program, and we feel that 
the Bishop's idea of joint efforts and 
organizations of the men and women 
of the Church has great promise and 
should be tried, at least in some parts 
of the Diocese." 

On youth: "We join with him in. 
urging that new ways and means be 
developed to bring them into full par- 
ticipation in the Church's life." 

On political and social issues: "In 

the last portion of the Bishop's address 
he recognizes the existence of a deep 
division between many laymen and 
clergy in the Diocese on the question 
of whether or not the Church should 
participate directly in current political 
and social struggles. We feel the Bish- 
op's statement that the Church should 
overarch the differences on these is- j 
sues properly and adequately repre- J I 
sents the course which our Church 
should follow. We commend his state- 
ment to you as one which true church- 
men can follow with good conscience 
and one which is broad enough to per- 
mit differences of opinion and free- 
dom of discussion." 

On clergy salaries: "We concur 
heartily that they are too low."

Adult School Second Session 
Set April 14-16 At Reidsville 

The first School of Theology for All 
Adults got off to a good start at the 
Betsy- Jeff Penn 4-H Center at Reids- 
ville the first weekend in March. 

It is hoped that many more persons 
will attend the second session (April 
14-16) than were able to get there 
during the first. The subject matter — 
Christian Belief and Behavior — 
proved to be very interesting. 

Many remarked that this was the 
first time in their entire lives that they 
had been able to meet with a group of 
intelligent people and to pursue a sub- 
ject with depth. 

Not only did the adults enjoy the 
lectures and discussions, but there was 
a play put on by Bill Rawls and friends 
from Rocky Mount. The April session

Charlotte Organist Among 9 
Accredited Throughout U. S. 

. . . One-Man Ecumenical Movement 

Richard Kenneth Van Stiver of 
Charlotte has succeeded in passing the 
Accreditation Program Test of the 
Joint Commission on Church Music. 
Only nine people from across the coun- 
try successfully passed the difficult ex- 

In September this year for the first 
time examinations were given in 
Church Music in behalf of the Epis- 
copal Church. They are part of an ac- 
creditation program instituted and 

sponsored by our Church's Commis- 
sion on Music. 

The examinations and the accredi- 
tation program arose out of a long-felt 
need for objective standards to which 
one might refer to assist in the place- 
ment of Church musicians. Those who 
took and successfully completed the 
examinations are awarded a citation 
from the Presiding Bishop of the 
Church verifying knowledge of musi- 
cal requirements of the Prayer Book 

services and hyman as well as an 
adequate understanding of the history 
of worship as practiced in our Church. 
Proficiency in instrumental ability and 
choral technique are indicated in the 
accreditation examination but not the 
primary objective of the examination. 

Van Sciver was born in New York 
City in 1916. After playing his first 
recital at the age of 11, and leading 
an extremely active life as a young 
musician, he studied at the Juilliard 
School of Music and at Columbia Uni- 
versity (B.S. and M.A. in music edu- 
cation). He was a member of the fac- 
ulty of Columbia's Teachers College 
from 1940 to 1947 as an Instructor 
in Music and Music Education, teach- 
ing advanced piano and key board 

Van Sciver is married and is the 
father of eight children, all of them 
musical. He has served a number of 
churches as organist, starting at the 
age of 13 as assistant organist of 
the Larchmont Avenue Presbyterian 
Church in Larchmont, N. Y. In 1934 
he was appointed organist of that 
church, then moved in 1941 to St. 
John's Episcopal Church there. In 
1947 he came to Thomasville, N. C. as 
organist of the newly-formed Memorial 
Methodist Church. In 1949 he was 
called to St. Peter's Episcopal Church, 
Charlotte. In 1955 he went to Char- 
lotte's First Methodist Church, and 
in 1957 to Christ Church, returning 
to St. Peter's in 1962, where he is 
now serving. 

Besides numerous appearances as 
performer and director, as guest artist 
with the Charlotte Symphony, etc., Van 
Sciver has served two terms as dean 
of the Charlotte Chapter of the Ameri- 
can Guild of Organists and twice as 
chairman of A.G.O. regional conven- 
tions. He was one of the founders and 
the first president of the Oratorio Sing- 
ers of Charlotte, and has served on 
the boards of the Oratorio Singers, the 
Charlotte Symphonette, and the for- 
mer Charlotte Arts Council, serving 
also as chairman of the latter. 

Van Sciver claims to be something ! 
of a one-man ecumenical movement. 
Besides having played services at one 
time or another in just about every 
one of the Protestant denomina- 
tions, he has also played for Russian 
and Greek Orthodox services, Roman 
Catholic and Jewish services, an Ar- 
menian wedding service, and has 
taught in a Roman Catholic seminary.

Church of the Month 

Proposed New Trinity Church, Stafesville 

Winston-Salem Journal 

STATES VILLE — Trinity Episco- 
pal Church here is getting ready to 
build a new church. 

A building fund drive will begin with 
a dinner at 6:45 p.m. today in the 
Fellowship Hall of First Presbyterian 
Church. The drive will end Dec. 11. 

If enough funds are subscribed, the 
Rev. Frank F. Fagan III, rector, said, 
construction will begin in March and 
should be completed within a year. 

The new church will be built on 
three acres the congregation has owned 
for 10 years at Henkel Road and North 
Center Street, across from the Forest 
/Heights Shopping Center. 

The church now has a downtown 
location on Walnut Street near Mitch- 
ell College. Originally, the congrega- 
tion was named Chapel of the Cross. 
Its first services were held in 1858. The 
present sanctuary was built in 1875. 
A year later, when it was conse- 
crated, the name was changed to

The original seating for 125 became 
inadequate long ago. Facilities across 
the street have been put into use and 
the parish house expanded, but still the 
congregation is unable to provide suf- 
ficient services to its membership. 

Fagan is holding three services each 
Sunday, Sunday school classes are

The downtown church is known for 
its Gothic architecture. The new build- 
ing, designed by Adams and Pegram 
of Statesville, will maintain some of 
this design. It will be a modern in- 
terpretation of the Old English style of 
white structure with stained exposed 

The structure will be of brick, 
painted white. The exposed beam de- 
sign will be prominently used in an 
overhang around the entire structure. 

The new church will consist of a 
270-seat nave, with a balcony seating 
an additional 45 people, a center aisle 
with two side aisles, a chancel with 
choir and organ lofts facing one an- 
other and a raised sanctuary or altar 

Beneath the nave will be a parish 
hall, which can seat 254 for dinner. 

In a separate building, connected by 
a covered walkway will be a two-level 
unit, consisting of the rector's and 
church secretary's offices, a ladies' par- 
lor and seven church school class- 

Beneath this level will be the kin- 
dergarten facilities, double the size of 

Second Mile 

Due to the failure of several 
parishes to meet their program 
quotas for 1967, a reduction of 
$38,000 has been made in this 
year's diocesan budget. The ef- 
fect of this reduction is the elimi- 
nation of expansion work for new 
missions, college work, institutions 
and MRI from the current year's 

At least one parish in the Dio- 
cese has decided to do something 
about the situation. After accept- 
ing its indicated quota, the vestry 
of Trinity Church in Statesville 
voted to appropriate another $500 
to help offset the deficit. 
The Rev. Frank Fagan is rector. 

present facilities. A courtyard will open 
out from this level. 

The nave will have two main 
stained-glass windows, one at the en- 
trance and the other at the altar area. 

Before Fagan become rector two 
years ago, the congregation was con- 
stantly in the spotlight, often because 
of the former rector's public stand on 

civil rights. Membership and interest 
at this time dropped drastically. 

The Rev. James P. Dees resigned 
in November, 1963, after serving the 
church for eight years. During this time 
he founded and became president of 
the N. C. Defenders of States' Rights 
and was active in other organizations 
in conflict with the official position of 
the Protestant Episcopal Church on 

When he resigned the rectorship, 
Dees also resigned from the Episcopal 
Church. He became affiliated with a 
new denomination, the Anglican Or- 
thodox Church, of which he is now a 
bishop. He is also rector of Saint 
Peter's Anglican Church here. 

Fagan, said the church office and 
Sunday school facilities and kinder- 
garten center next to Mitchell College 
will be turned over to the college. 

Trinity is now renovating a former 
garage as an Episcopal student center 
and coffee house which will be called 
the Canterbury House. 

The congregation hopes to open it 1 
within two weeks. It will be open daily I 
from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. (Reprinted I

Bishops Letter: 

Budget Reductions Examples Of 
Self-Service, Poor Stewardship 

My fellow Churchmen: 

We are all distressed that the Diocesan Council has been forced to reduce the 
proposed budget for 1967 by $38,000. In one respect this is not as serious as 
it appears on the surface for the Diocese did raise $10,000 more this year than 
last year. The amount pledged for the Church's Program Budget in 1966 was 
$504,418, in 1967, $515,667. On the other hand, it does mean that we are being 
forced to spend more on the maintenance of ourselves and less on others which 
is not a good sign either from the point of view of Christian obligation or from 
the point of view of good business. It simply means that we are not broadening 
the base of giving to the work of the Church and therefore are being forced to 
concentrate more upon our own self-maintenance. 

There are those in the Diocese who think that none of this is true but that as 
a Diocese, we are failing to measure up to our possibilities. In short, that we 
are practicing very poor stewardship. I am happy to say that since the last 
Diocesan Council meeting, the following Churches have increased their pledge 
to the Diocese or have assumed a larger proportion of their Church's Program 
Quota than they thought was possible. In each case these congregations do feel 
a sense of stewardship towards the work of the Church, not only their local con- 
gregation but the work in the Diocese and the National Church. Saint Christo- 
pher's, High Point, voluntarily pledged the sum of $1,200. Saint Philip's, 
Durham, pledged over and above its quota $400 and Trinity, Statesville $500 
over its quota. Saint Andrew's, Charlotte increased their pledge to their quota 
by $510.50. I was deeply moved by a letter from one layman who sent the 
Diocese a check saying, "It was disappointing to learn through the Memorandum 
from the Diocesan Council that the proposed 1967 budget for the program of 
our Church in the Diocese had to be reduced by the amount of $38,000. It is 
sad to think that such an important part of our Church Program must be cur- 
tailed. Enclosed you will find a check for $500." This person, whom I am 
sure would rather remain anonymous is indicative of the strong Christian con- 
viction of the lay people of this Diocese, which in effect is the life of the Diocese. 

The budget which was proposed for 1967 is as "tight" a budget as it was 
possible for the Diocesan Council to propose. It was given very careful con- 
sideration by the Finance Department, members of the Diocesan staff, and the 
Diocesan Council. I am not certain as to whether it is just poor stewardship on 
our part or whether the failure to raise the $38,000 indicates that some of our 
existing congregations are finding it harder and harder to survive. It would be 
my hope that it was poor stewardship for this gives us an opportunity to change 
our hearts, to evaluate what we are doing and why we are doing it and to rise 
to the occasion to meet the challenge that is before us. 

In effect this is the story of Lent, that we will take a strict inventory of our 
lives. If we do so and change our ways, then Easter holds the pure joy of victory 
and in some measure the Christian life of God's Kingdom becomes a reality for 

us> Faithfully in Christ, 

Thomas A. Fraser

Women Of St. Andrew's Ready For 
Rhododendron Time At Charlotte 

Van Landingham with Mesdames Thomas Fraser, Tom Chrisholm and David Woodruff 

It's nigh on to rhododendron time 
at the Ralph Van Landingham home 
at the corner of The Plaza and Belve- 
dere in Charlotte. 

For on the week end of April 28- 
30 Van Landingham will throw open 
his gardens to the public so that flower 
lovers can see four acres of colorful 
blooms in all their new-blooming glory. 

One thousand rhododendrons in 
about 160 varieties, 60 of them new, 
will wave gently in the springtime 
breeze as though in greeting to the 
visitors. Several colorful azaleas, roses 
and ferns also are in the garden. 

Van Landingham, a prominent Epis- 
copal churchman, began growing rho- 
dodendrons as a hobby following the 
death of his father a number of years 

The elder Van Landingham had 
planted a group of English Rhododen- 
drons near the rear door of his home. 
They grew and prospered but attracted 
little attention. When Mr. Van Land- 
ingham died his son decided to per- 
petuate his father's memory by start- 
ing a test garden. From this humble 
beginning came a garden which at- 
tracted national attention. 

Today, Van Landingham accepts the 
compliments to his horticultural skill by 
replying that he is no extra-ordinary 
gardener, it was sentiment that got 
him started on his project, sentiment 
which helped him attain a rare peak 

Consecration Set 

The Episcopal Diocese of North 
Carolina will consecrate its new 
suffragan bishop at Raleigh's 
Church of the Good Shepherd on 
April 25. 

The Rt. Rev. Thomas A. 
Fraser, bishop of the Diocese, 
said that the Rev. W. Moultrie 
Moore, Jr., of Charlotte would be 
consecrated in services beginning 
at 10:30 a.m. Mr. Moore was 
elected suffragan bishop at the re- 
cent annual convention of the Dio- 

The Rt. Rev. Albert Rhett 
Stuart, bishop of the Diocese of 
Georgia, will conduct the service 
of consecration, Bishop Fraser 

of perfection in his efforts. 

When Robert Comerford, the Ma- 
rion, Oregon, grower from whom 
Van Landingham purchased many 
plants, visited the gardens he was 
"thrilled" with the crisp, green fo- 
liage in the beds. He was amazed 
that although the sun had created a 
blistering hot day not one leaf had 
fallen or seemed likely to fall. 

More than 500 of Van Landingham's 
hybrid rhododendrons came from the 
Comerford nursery. This nationally 
known grower has helped spread the 
fame of the gardens to such an ex- 
tend that when the National Rhodo- 
dendron Society meets in Asheville in 
May members will make a side trip to 
Charlotte to see the gardens. 

Up to 200 persons, representing 19 
chapters all over the nation, are ex- 
pected to meet in Asheville, the heart 
of the rhododendron country, May 
7-9. They will come to Charlotte by 
bus on May 10. 

Van Landingham's gardens are "ex- 
perimental" and the rhododendron 
growers, many of them physicians and 
surgeons, will want to see the success

NEW PARISH HALL AT ST. CYPRIAN'S— The new Parish Hall of St. Cy- 
prian's Church, Oxford, was completed early last year and dedicated on April 17 
of last year by Bishop Fraser. The congregation is grateful for the help given by 
the Executive Council (U.T.O. Division) of New York, the Diocese of North 
Carolina, diocesan churches and organizations, and friends, without whom con- 
struction of the building would have been impossible. Othello D. Stanley, serves 
as vicar at St. Cyprian's.

Mr. Fan joy Dies — Mr. Albert Fan- 
joy of Statesville died there early in 
February, only a few days after he 
received the Bishop's Award for out- 
standing service to the Diocese at the 
151st Convention in Winston-Salem. 
The following is quoted from a States- 
ville newspaper: '^His chief interest 
was Trinity Episcopal Church, which 
he served for many years as a vestry- 
man and recently retired as senior war- 
den. ... He had been appointed 
alternate delegate to the church's gen- 
eral convention, representing the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina. He was a mem- 
ber of the executive board of Penick 
Memorial Home." 

In Concert — Miss Hilda Harris, 
niece of the late Bishop Bravid Harris, 
gave a recital at Carnegie Hall late in 
January. Miss Harris, a mezzo soprano, 
is a member of the chorus of the 
Metropolitan Opera, and has appeared 
with the Broadway Lyric Theatre, most 
recently in "Golden Boy" and "Mame." 
A native of Warrenton, she was gradu- 
ated from North Carolina College at 
Durham and continued her vocal 
studies in New York City. 

Organ Recital — First recital on the 
new organ at St. Andrew's, Charlotte, 
took place early in March. Charles L. 
Dirr, professor of organ at Tift College, 
Forsyth, Ga., presented the program. 
The Rev. David Woodruff is rector. 

A Trustee — Dr. David A. Lockhart 
of Concord has been reelected to the 
Board of Trustees of the University of 
the South at Sewanee, Tenn. Dr. Lock- 
hart, a physician in Concord, has been 
a trustee since 1964. The board is the 
policy-making body of the University 
and elects the board of regents, the 
chancellor, and chaplain. 

To India — Dr. Jeffrey Gipson, 
chairman of the Chemistry Department 
at St. Augustine's, will return to India 
this month to serve as consultant to a 
summer institute in chemistry for sec- 
ondary school teachers. The institute 
will last six weeks. It is sponsored by 
the U. S. Agency for International De- 
velopment, a division of the National 

Science Foundation. Dr. Gipson served 
in a similar capacity during the sum- 
mer of 1965. He has directed nine such 
programs in this country and has served 
on three panels for selection of col- 
leges and universities to receive grants 
from the foundation. 

New Chaplain — New chaplain at St. 
Mary's Junior College is the Rev. Rob- 
ert C. Baird. He comes to Raleigh

Second session of the Lay School of 
Theology will be held on the week- 
end of April 14-16 at Betsy- Jeff Penn

Rev. Richard Ottaway, Church and 
Industry Institute, Winston-Salem; the 
Rev. William Spong, chaplain, Duke 
Hospital, Durham, and Memorial 
Hospital, Chapel Hill; and the Rev.

The Churchman 

Raleigh Woman Tells Of Nepal Trip 

Christ Church, Raleigh 

When my husband, Charles Styron 
and I went to Nepal last fall to see 
our Peace Corps son we were amazed 
to see Big Brother Buddha peering 
from the top of all the domelike tem- 
ples. Rachel Wolff at the Shanta 
Bhawan hospital in Katmandu has 
kept the Episcopal Churchwomen in- 
formed about the primitive conditions 
in the little secluded mountainous 
country of Nepal but we weren't pre- 
pared for this Buddhist culture. 

The strange eyes on the shrines are 
painted on all four sides and the flut- 
tering streamers like those strung at 
filling stations here, are prayer flags. 
The Buddhists and Hindus coexist 
peacefully in Nepal and these small, 
graceful people take their offerings of 
fruit and marigold blossoms to the 
macabre God of Terror in much the 
same way that we put money in our 
thank offering boxes. 

Of course, the women in Nepal in- 
terested me particularly. And if you 
ask me who was the most unforgettable 
woman I met in Nepal, Deedee, a 
little five foot peasant comes to mind. 
She wasn't as unusual as the dedi- 
cated woman doctor specializing in 
leprosy or as beautiful as the Nepalese 
secretary widowed at age 13 who 
looked like another Madame Nu, but 
she occupies a special place in my 
heart. She may have saved my life. 

We met on the trail hiking into the 
Valley of the Butterflies to Putliket, 
the village where Charlie and Sam, his 
Peace Corps roommate were stationed. 
There were no roads into the interior, 
just rocky paths through the moun- 
tains. We had started at 6:30 and it 
had been a tiring steep climb. We had 
stopped at a tea house to rest. But 
don't picture geisha girls in flowing 
kimonos. This tea house was a one 
story hut perched on the mountain 
side with a fabulous view of the Hi- 
malayan Annapurna, but chickens and 
goats felt free to wander in and we 
had to shoo them out when we sat 
down for tea on the mud floor. 

We were served a hot stickily sweet 
tea with hot scorched milk from a little 
clay stove fed by twigs. Our hostess 
was a smiling drably dressed peasant 
woman, with only gold hoops in her 
pierced ears for ornament. We were 
discussing whether we should stay here 

. . . God of Terror Worshipped Informally Here 

overnight since it was late and there bed bug bites on his legs and I be- 
was a four-hour descent ahead if we came leery of the tea house quilts, 
made it to the Valley of the Butter- While we were trying to decide, Dee- 
flies that night. The accommodations dee, a little wiry woman came swing- 
were straw mats on the mud floor and ing down the trail, carrying a wicker 
a quilt for cover. 1 had noticed that hamper full of supplies on her back 
Charlie, the Peace Corps son, had with the hamper's strap across her fore- 

She was merrily singing. She and 
Charlie exchanged greetings in Nepa- 
lese and she said she was bound for 
Putliket that night. That decided me. I 
longed for Charlie's clean sheets. 

"Well, mother it's rough walking 
down the gorge." 

"Don't worry about me. It's clear 
and the moon will soon be out." 

"Don't count on it. The moon's got 
a mountain to get over." 

Little Deedee watched us with in- 
terest as we got started. Charlie and 
the porter ahead with one flashlight 
and his father and I sharing the other. 
Unconcerned she walked surefootedly 
over the slippery stones, her barefeet so 
calloused that she never winced. She 
noticed that I was hesitating to step on 
teetering boulders and was unsure of 
the rocky banks of the fast stream. 
So with a little clucking sound much 
as a mother hen she took my arm 
and persistently guided me. She chat- 
tered encouragingly and I asked 
Charlie what she was saying since the 
DEEDEE Peace Corps have to learn the lan- 

. . . Companion on the Trail guage. He told me "She's telling you 

April 1967 


the story of her family, her children 
and that she is 35 years old." I didn't 
know whether to cheer or sympathize 
and since I couldn't talk back I tried 
singing a favorite hymn, "O God Our 
Help in Ages Past." 

Have you ever sung off key in the 
dark to a stranger who couldn't un- 
derstand as you stumbled along 
a precipice? She seemed to get into 
the spirit of the occasion and left off 
chattering and began to chant, "Krish- 
na, Krishna, Rama, Shiva." This was 
a trinity of her favorite gods and it 
was easier to sing than any of my 
hymns so I joined in with her and had 
such a good time that 1 forgot to be 
scared of slipping down the falls of the 

When we finally got to Putliket, 
Charlie invited Deedee to come to the 
village tea house for rice with us. It 
turned out that she was a Gurung 
which is high caste and therefore she 
could come inside the tea house and 
eat whereas the Nepalese porter had 
to have his rice outside. We took off 
our boots and sat down on a straw 
mat on the mud floor naturally. We 
were served the rice on a brass plate. 
It was caked and cold but we were 
supposed to crumble it up with the 
right hand and dip it in some dal. Now 
this is where I part company with the 
Nepalese. Cold unsalted rice I can 
eat when famished, but not dal. It is 
a concoction of mashed up beans, 
squash, etc. . . . flavored with liquid 
fire that goes by the name of mustard 

Deedee and Charlie went to work 
on the dal. My husband and I tried to 
drink the scorched tea and rice. I 
thought hopefully of the compressed 
hershey bars in my luggage. They 
tasted like brown chalk in Raleigh 
but here they would be heavenly. 

After supper we put our boots back 
on and stumbled along the rocky 
street to Charlie's tin roofed mud hut. 
Deedee was still with us and climbed 
right up the ladder to the loft where 
we, dead tired, began to sack down. 
Sam gave up his cot to us, the Peace 
Corps parents, and spread out a sleep- 
ing bag on the floor two feet to the 
left of us. Charlie was situated about 
eight feet in front of us and Deedee 
lay down in between. Before I could 
marvel on this unconventional ar- 
rangement I was asleep. 

At dawn I awoke to the sound of 
"swish-swish." Next door Charlie's 


. . . Buddha Sees All 

neighbor was remuddying her mud 
floor with a wet rag; this lays the dust 
and smooths out any cracks. 

In no time at all Deedee had awak- 
ened, rebraided her hair, adjusted all 
six yards of her sari and was preparing 
to go on her way — wherever that 
was. Luckily I had tucked in some 
necklaces that had been slated for the 
White Elephant table at our church 

bazaar. I pulled out the prettiest one, 
three strands of red beads. I wished 
they were rubies, she had been such 
a treasure. She gleefully put them on 
and looked at herself in Charlie's shav- 
ing mirror; we embraced, she put her 
strap on her forehead, her pack on 
her back and climbing down the lad- 
der began her little chant, "Krishna, 
Krishna, Rama, Shiva."

The Churchman 

Robinson Now Heads St. Augustine's 

Dr. Prezell R. Robinson has been 
named president of Saint Augustine's 
College at Raleigh. 

Dr. Robinson, a member of the 
Saint Augustine's faculty since 1956, 
succeeds Dr. James A. Boyer who will 
return to the classroom as professor of 

Dr. Robinson's appointment was an- 
nounced by the Rt. Rev. Thomas A. 
Fraser, bishop of the Episcopal Diocese 
of North Carolina who heads the col- 
lege's board of trustees. 

The new president joined Saint 
Augustine's as dean of instruction and 
professor of sociology. He is a 1946 
graduate of the college he now heads 
and earned his masters as well as a 
doctoral degree at Cornell. He was 
voted one of the three most outstand- 
ing teachers at Saint Augustine's in 
1962 and received the Faculty Award 
for outstanding services in 1960. 

Dr. Robinson has published several 
professional journal articles and has 
directed six Science Institutes at Saint 
Augustine's under sponsorship of the 
National Science Foundation. 

More than 25 workshop leaders at- 
tended a two day conference January 
20-21, 1967 at "Burnside," the home of 
Mrs. Samuel M. Shoemaker in Steven- 
son, Maryland, which planned its par- 
ticipation after much interesting discus- 
sion on the Tenth Annual Conference 
of the Anglican Fellowship of Prayer 
to be held at St. Paul's Episcopal 
Church, 9th and Grace streets, Rich- 
mond, Virginia 23219, on April 14, 15, 
1967. At "Burnside" discussion cen- 
tered around our role in the Ecumeni- 
cal Movement, the Living Room 
Dialogues now going on among the 
separated Churches of Christ, and the 
small group movements for discussion 
and prayer. 

Workshop leaders were asked to sign 
up for the workshops they felt most 
qualified to lead. The Rt. Rev. Fred- 
erick H. Wilkinson, D.D., the retired 
Bishop of Toronto, Canada and chair- 
man of the International Committee of 

... '46 Grad Becomes President 

In 1965 he lectured and studied in 
India under a Fulbright Fellowship. 

Saint Augustine's trustees have just 
approved plans for the erection of a 
new student center and classroom on 
the Raleigh campus. 

the Anglican Fellowship of Prayer will 
be the principal speaker giving two 
meditations during the morning of 
April 15, on "The Primacy of Prayer 
in Life and Liturgy" and then a final 
summary meditation and closing pray- 
ers in the mid-afternoon of April 15. 
Workshops will be held on Friday, 
April 14 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. and 
they will be repeated again the same 
evening from 8:00 to 9:30 so that an 
opportunity will be given to attend two 
workshops on Friday. Other workshops 
will be held on Saturday, April 15, 
from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., dealing with 
the meditations given by Bishop Wil- 

Registration for the Conference will 
be held from 1:30 p.m. on Friday at 
the Jefferson Hotel and at the Parish 
House of St. Paul's Church in Rich- 
mond. Registration for those who can- 
not arrive until Saturday will be held 
from 9:00 to 10:00 a.m. at St. Paul's 

Church on Saturday. The highlight of 
the entire Conference will be the great 
expression of corporate prayer at the 
celebration of the Holy Communion 
at 10:00 a.m. in St. Paul's Church on 
Saturday. Another important and new 
aspect of the Conference will be a ban- 
quet at the Jefferson Hotel at 6:00 
p.m. on Friday, April 14. The hosts 
for the banquet will be the three Vir- 
ginia Dioceses who are the hosts for 
the Conference. 

In welcoming the Anglican Fellow- 
ship of Prayer to Richmond, the Rt. 
Rev. Robert F. Gibson, Bishop of 
Virginia says — "The Anglican Fellow- 
ship of Prayer, with increasing atten- 
tion and spreading influence, is re- 
calling us to the study and practice of 
prayer as a central and essential aspect 
of Christian life. We rejoice and thank 
God for this ever needed emphasis 
and renewal. 

"In the Diocese of Virginia there is 
special gratitude that, we are privileged 
to serve as hosts for another great Con- 
ference on Prayer, sponsored by the 
Fellowship, which is scheduled at St. 
Paul's Church, Richmond, on April 
14-15 of this year. We welcome guests 
from many dioceses but especially the 
Rt. Rev. Frederick Wilkinson of 
Toronto, who will conduct the Con- 
ference on 'The Primacy of Prayer in 
Life and Liturgy'. 

"Emphasis on unity, and the place 
and power of prayer within the ecu- 
menical movement, have been at the 
heart of the Fellowship of Prayer ac- 
tivity and study. In prayerful and hum- 
ble dependence on the one God and 
Father of us all we are not divided; 
and through prayer He can lead us 
all to that manifest unity in Christ 
which is His will. 

"I urge your prayers for the coming 
Conference of the Anglican Fellowship 
of Prayer, and especially that it may 
serve fruitfully in the ecumenical call 
to all Christian people." 

Bishop Wilkinson suggests the fol- 
lowing prayer to be used in prepara- 
tion for the Tenth Annual Conference. 
"O God, who art always more ready 
to hear than we are to pray, help us 
to live daily by the remembrance of 
our Lord's words, 'Men ought always 
to pray, and not to faint'."

Blessing Of Hounds 

(Continued from page 2) 

and Mrs. David A. Smith of Durham who complained in essense that "Episco- 
palians everywhere can take heart that the country club image of the Church 
is being preserved unruffled, in that the front page news of the Church's minis- 
try is the priestly blessing of the playthings of the wealthy for their ancient and 
honorable gory games." 

There is a lot of misunderstanding here. To begin with, the implication that 
only the wealthy participate in the hunt and the insinuation of class distinction 
create a false image not seen by the eye of the true beholder. Many members 
of the hunt are in extremely modest circumstances. Some, particularly the younger 
ones, have bred and trained their own horses. Much of the equipment is earned 
by industry, sacrifice and frugality. With careful maintenance, saddles, boots 
and the traditional formal dress will last a generation. Two married graduate 
student members come to mind . . . they were so keen to hunt, they sold their 
car in order to buy two horses. 

Now as to this pious concern for the little fox. It is superfluous. The Triangle 
Hunt is not "gory" and is not mad with Brer Fox. The Smiths seem to have in 
mind the Tom Jones days of Merrie England when people RODE TO HUNT. In 
America today, and certainly in the Triangle area, most fox hunters HUNT TO 
RIDE. There is a difference. The Triangle Hunt is a so-called drag hunt — that 
is, before the hunt, the bedding of the fox is dragged along suitable trails and 
jumps. This makes for safer, more adaptable sport. The hounds then follow the 
scent while the fat little fox stays smugly at home in his pen and the members 
enjoy a thrilling "hunt." Occasionally the hounds will get off the drag on the 
scent of a rabbit or a deer or a live fox. With great excitement, they will then 
lead the field astray until they lose the scent. (Various farmers in our fox hunt- 
ing areas have stated that they wished we had live hunts, as the predatory fox is 
doing away with too many of their chickens!) 

Now — in defense of those hunts that are live — a gentleman who has been 
live fox hunting in North Carolina and Virginia regularly for the past 30 years 
admitted to me recently in a somewhat confidential tone that, although there 
have been instances, he himself has yet to see the hounds kill a fox. In most live 
hunts in Virginia and elsewhere they make a point of seeing to it that the fox, 
if located and chased, has a chance to escape underground so that he can lead 
them a merry chase another day. In fact, I hear tell that some hunts chase the 
same sassy fox for years, yet the foxy one is not disturbed enough about it to 
move to another county. 

The hunt presents a gallant and moving spectacle, something out of the 18th 
century. The horses obviously enjoy it, as do the hounds. The landowners, whose 
generosity makes the hunt possible, loyally turn out to watch. The blessing of the 
hounds by a priest of the Church takes place at the first hunt of each season and 
is an historic tradition in foxhunting. The prayer is essentially an English transla- 
tion of a Roman Catholic prayer about 800 years old and is both high-minded 
and reverent: 

"Oh God, who sanctifieth all things by Thy word, pour down Thy 
blessing on these Thy servants and their horses and hounds. To all 
who shall take part in this hunt, grant protection of body and soul. 
Grant that true sportsmanship may prevail in all we do this day. Heed 
our humble prayer, oh God, for all animals, especially those in whose 
companionship we find joy and help. We entreat for them Thy mercy 
and pity, and for those who deal with them we ask a heart of compas- 
sion, gentle hands and kindly words. Make us all to be true friends 
of animals and to share the blessings of the merciful. For the sake of 
Thy Son, Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen." 

Could anyone possibly object to a prayer such as this? Wouldn't it be wonder- 
ful if a similarly appropriate prayer for safety, responsibility and sportsmanship 
could be heard over the loudspeaker before each big football or basketball game.

Chaplain, Central Prison* Raleigh 

The chaplain, like the doctor, the 
role officer, and the educator has a 
ecialized job to do and makes a 
igular contribution to the whole pro- 
am of individualized treatment. 
The many professional techniques 
lployed in our modern penal institu- 
tns to implement individual treat- 
5nt programs are of little effect 
thout the help of the patient. The in- 
ate remains the keystone in the 
chitecture of correctional treatment, 
iless he has the desire for self-im- 
ovement and the courage to keep 
/ing, treatment methods, no matter 
iw skillfully applied, will fail. 
Through weekly religious services, 
peated counsel, education, pastoral 
siting, and sacramental ministrations, 
e chaplain helps the inmate estab- 
h a foundation in religious faith to 
pport a continuing desire for self- 
lprovement, with ensuing benefit to 
e inmate and to society. Thus, in a 
:nal setting an active and full re- 
;ious program is an integral part of 
e total reformative process. By help- 
g the inmate develop toward spir- 
tal and moral maturity the prison 
aplain supplements and reenforces 
her professional treatment. By help- 
g the inmate to understand the mean- 
ly of religion in human relationships, 
gives him a base upon which to 
lid a better life. 

Frequently, the chaplain must be- 
lt his work with the individual at an 
smentary level for many inmates are 
lorly informed as to the real mean- 
5 and benefits of religion. The in- 
tte's initial awareness of the value 
religious principles and teachings 
en has its beginning in his contacts 
th the chaplain. Awareness so neces- 
y to wholesome personality growth 
ss not come about solely through 
endance at weekly religious services, 
is brought about by sincere intro- 
iction on the part of the inmate, 
ed by individual pastoral councell- 
; by clergymen of discernment who

. . . 'Big House' His Parish 

have an understanding of their own 

In these inter-personal relationships, 
the chaplain's role is complex. He must 
be both understanding and realistic. 
He must act in humility without loss 
of dignity. He must encourage without 
building false hopes. He is a member 
of the administrative staff, yet protect 
communications made in pastoral con- 
fidence. Above all, he must keep in- 
violate the vocation to which he is 
called and his responsibilities to his 

In the North Carolina Prison Sys- 
tem, no inmate is compelled to attend 
services of religious worship. To put 
attendance at such services on other 
than a voluntary basis, would be an in- 
fringement of religious freedom, and a 
contradiction of the accepted belief 
that spiritual growth must come from 
within, even though it must be nur- 
tured from without. All inmates, how- 
ever, are encouraged to attend, and 
are allowed to do so if at all possible. 

It is recognized that the first duty 
of a chaplain is to conduct services of 
worship and administer the sacraments. 
In this area of responsibility, the chap- 
lain always bears in mind that his 
congregation is deserving of religious 
services conducted in accordance with 
the highest standards of public wor- 
ship. All men are equal in the 
sanctuary of the chapel no religious 
differences exists between the popula- 
tion of a prison and that of a free 

Clergymen and other duly au- 
thorized spiritual leaders in the com- 
munities are invited to conduct ser- 
vices within the institutions and field 
units. The introduction of different 
clerical personages does much to re- 
tain inmate interest in the religious 
program. Unlike most congregations, 
that of the prison chaplain has little 
opportunity to benefit from the stimu- 
lus of newly encountered personalities. 
In selecting visiting clerical members, 
the chaplain will choose carefully. 

The chaplain gives special attention 
to the planning and conducting of ser- 
vices of religious worship. In an en- 
vironment where routine is everpresent 
and controlling in the daily life, care 
is taken to keep the service interest- 
ing, enriching, inspiring and reverent. 
Excessive emotionalism is avoided. 

Much of the chaplain's time is de- 
voted to personal counselling. In his 
role as counsellor in the matter of re- 
ligious and personal problems affect- 
ing the inmate, the chaplain remains 
continuously aware of the professional 
services which can be provided by 
other members of the treatment staff. 
He does not encroach upon these 
areas of service, but will confer with 
other staff members with reference to 
the help they may be able to render. 
In his personal interviews the chaplain 
will be alert to any indications of per- 
sonal tension and internal pressures 
and attempt to allay them. All inmates 
will be allowed and encouraged to seek 
personal consultation with chaplains of 
their respective faiths. 

The weekly service, the Sunday 
School and the mid-week service can- 
not be expected to provide adequate 
religious indoctrination, nor complete 
the inmate's knowledge and under- 
standing of his religion. It must be 
augmented by other instruction. So 
the inmates are encouraged to take 
advantage of the large number of cor- 
respondence courses available for this 
use in the study of religious subjects. 
Religious literature (books, pamphlets, 
and tracts) are also made available. 
All such material, of course, is ex- 
amined before use of distribution to 
eliminate the introduction of material 
which might be considered as contra- 
band under prison rules or unsuitable 
for the religious education of the in- 

The prison is the chaplain's parish, 

so he knows the inmates as they live 
and work in the institutional com- 
munity. As he is familiar with the vari- 
ous parts of the prison and observes 
the inmates on their work assignment, 
in the schools, and in recreation ac- 
tivities, he has a better understanding 
of the total correctional treatr- . pro- 
gram and the inmate's adjustment to 

The prison hospitals are visited fre- 
c • tly by the chaplain. In the ad- 

. ..ty of illness or injury, most 
persons welcome callers, if their phy- 
sical condition permits. 

A brief visit by a sympathetic and 
considerate caller usually helps and 
encourages them. They often are more 
receptive at such a time to spiritual 
ministration, and afford the chaplain 
an unusual opportunity for performing 
a spiritual service. 

On his visit through the institutions 
or field units, the chaplain causes as 
little disruption of activity as possible. 
Although he may converse briefly with 
inmates, he will avoid lengthy per- 
sonal consultations. The benefits of 
such visiting are derived largely from 
the inmates' awareness of the pres- 
ence of the chaplain and his manifest 
interest in them. 

The primary objective of the chap- 
lain's pastoral role is to minister to 
the inmate's spiritual needs, so the 
chaplain establishes a working rela- 
tionship with the inmate. This develops 
through counselling, visitation, and 
other inmate contacts with the religious 
program. It improves as the inmate 
progresses in moral and spiritual 
growth. He offers counsel and guid- 
ance throughout the inmate's incar- 
ceration. The chaplain makes himself 
available to the inmates' family for 
consultation when the inmate approves. 
Both family and inmate understand 
that all of the documents and letters 
of a religious nature pertaining to the 
inmate are held in confidence as are 
all such verbal communications. 

The chaplain is concerned with all 
matters relating to the spiritual life of 
all inmates under his care. He has a

with clergymen for follow-up with the

contact is granted by the inmate.

lain as confidant places him in a dif- 
ficult position. Here he has a clear re-

Edgar Hartley Named Director 
Of Kanuga Conferences, Inc. 


. . . Succeeds Mr. Grainger 

The Board of Directors of Kanuga 
Conferences, Inc., the largest Episco- 
pal conference and camping center in 
the United States located just South of 
Hendersonville has announced the 
appointment of Edgar Hartley, Jr. as 
executive director. The Rev. John C. 
Grainger, who had served in this ca- 
pacity since February, 1965, submitted 
his resignation. 

In announcing Hartley's appoint 
ment, the chairman of the Board, tl 
Rev. John W. Arrington, III, stat< 
that Hartley is qualified for the posi- 
tion having served in the capacities of 
assistant manager, acting director and 
manager for the past five years. 

Hartley is a graduate of Guilford 
College, at Greensboro, and attended 
graduate school at Southern Methodist 
University. He started his business ca- 
reer in YMCA work and after several 
years entered the life insurance field 
where he remained for 13 years be-; 
fore coming to Kanuga in 1961. 

Hartley served during World War II 
in the United States Marine Corps ris-j 
ing to the rank of major. He is a 
native of High Point and is married to 
the former Mary Holton Labberton ol 
Pittsburgh, Pa. The Hartleys have two 
sons; David, who is stationed at Camp 
Lejeune, N. C, serving in the Medical 
Corps of the U. S. Navy, and Frank: 
who is a student at Hendersonville 
High School. 

Kanuga is presently engaged in 
million-dollar development program! 
that, when completed, will enable the 
facilities to be used on a year-rounq 
basis with a dynamic Christian pro-, 
gram of interest for lay people of at 
ages and for the Episcopal Clergy. 

prison in which he works. He keeps the 
pastoral confidence intact and dis- 
charges, at the same time, his re- 
sponsibility for the protection of the 
institution, the employees and the in- 
mate population. When confronted 
with a perflexing circumstance arising 
from this dual responsibility, he exer- 
cises his best judgment in determining 
a proper cause of action. 

The chaplain builds and maintains 
relationship with the inmate by show- 
ing that he is concerned with both his 
temporal and spiritual needs. 

The chaplain works in cooperation 
with chaplains of other faiths. In this 
cooperative relationship, the chaplains 
finds it helpful to have a basic under- 
standing of the concepts and practices 
of the faiths represented by other 
chaplains. In the absence of a recog- 
nized representative of any of the 
major faiths, the chaplain provides 
spiritual guidance for any inmate who 
needs and requests it. He shall not, 

however, attempt to proselytize 

The prison chaplain receives fron 
his own denomination his religious au 
thority to serve in a prison. He is api 
pointed as a member of the prisoit 
system by the director of prisons. As 
staff member, he is directly respon 
sible to the director of prisoner reha. 

The director of prison rehabilita 
tion and the chaplain's associates ii 
the sections of the department recogj 
nizes the chaplain's professional stand 
ing, and will welcome his recom 
mendations with the respect to th 
formulation of policy affecting the re 
ligious welfare of the inmates 

Since the total treatment program i: 
the prison system is directed towar 
correction and rehabilitation, the chap 
Iain's functions coordinate with thos 
of other prison sections. Therefore, th 
chaplain has a sympathetic undei 
standing of the problems of thos

Given At Convention: 

Work Of Diocese Outlined 
In Program Director s Talk 

Editor's Note: Following is the 
address of the Rev. Charles R. 
Greene at the recent diocesan con- 

Jishop Fraser, Brother Clergy, Dele- 
gates and Guests: 
Your Office of Program is pleased 

0 report to this Diocesan Convention. 
The place where at least many of 

he meetings and much of the detail 
tnd paper work of the Program of the 
Mocese takes place is the Diocesan 
louse. This new building is a joy to 
vork and worship in. If you have not 
een it or been in the building, please 
ome and be given the tour. 

On August \1, the Reverend Leland 
amieson resigned as Assistant Direc- 
or of Program in order to do further 
tudy. This office is now occupied by 
he Reverend William Hethcock whose 
>astoral insights and administrative 
abilities have been appreciated widely 
a a relatively short time. 

The Program of the Diocese gives 
me a rather clear indication of the 
ife, work, concerns and plans of the 
Church. The last issue of The North 
Zarolina Churchman sought to pro- 
ide for you a view of what has or 
las not taken place. Our program is 
a a real sense our corporate diocesan 
(reclamation. What, during 1966, did 
ve proclaim? Did we do? Or, what 
leeds did we seek to meet? 
tor the Clergy 

1 Many of the vocations of man are 
^presented in this Church today. You 
[[now the rapid changes taking place 
1 your profession. Your clergy are 
xperiencing the same theoretical, or- 
anizational, promotional and personal 
Titrations you are. 

The need for re-tooling, further 
:udy and refreshment for the clergy 
bmains a major concern of the Bishop. 
|e continues to offer the Annual Cler- 
w Conference and the pre-Lenten 
luiet Day. The Bishop this year pro- 
Ided funds for the clergy of each con- 
vocation to enrich their ministries 
trough whatever means of enlighten- 
ment they may select as a convoca- 
bnal group. 

Also, the matter of a leave of ab- 

sence for intensive study is still a con- 
cern. A report from our own Leave 
of Absence Committee was made to 
this Convention last year. Understand- 
ably, a leave of absence would cause 
considerable rearrangement in most of 
our congregations as well as within 
the clergyman's family. However, the 
appeal is made to the vestries and 
mission committees to take this matter 
to heart. Approach your clergyman as 
to how he feels about it. Then, the 
proper and necessary details possibly 
could be arranged. 

Every concerned churchman today 
is aware of the fact there have been 
severe criticisms of the parish church 
and ministry. To put it too simply: 
"Church isn't what it used to be." 
There are many voices saying the 
church as we know it is quickly dis- 
appearing from the scene. 

Over 40 of the clergy have been 
able to come to the Diocesan House 
to discuss this concern, to confront 
the problem. This group basically 
agrees with our Presiding Bishop who 
stated recently: 

"Every structure needs continuing 
reassessment. Any structure that 
doesn't welcome needed analysis and 
criticism has signed its own death war- 
rant. But some of the arguments for 
jettisoning the parish structure are pre- 
mature. For good or ill, we still live 
in the parish; it's where the church 
is. It's the only structure we have for 
reaching people. It's where we are. 
I am sure change could make it more 
productive but nobody has come up 
with a real solution." 

For obvious reasons this study of 
the parochial life and structure is a 
painful process. We must all join in 
seeking to make our places of wor- 
ship a more valuable channel of Chris- 
tian instruction, behavior and service. 

The old saying goes that clergy are 
educated in ivory towers and never 
live in or understand this world. An 
institute has been established in our 
Diocese for our own clergy and those 
of other denominations within the 
State. The Church and Industry In- 
stitute is located here in Winston- 
Salem, and is under the directorship of

the Reverend Richard Ottaway. 

Why such an institute? The basic 
objective of the Institute is to become 
a resource facility to assist the clergy 
in developing a realistic understanding 
of the needs of their parishioners and 
to supply resources for effective com- 
munication. All of you will recognize 
the motivation behind this Institute. 
It was the growing awareness of the 
lack of meaningful communication be- 
tween the clergy and the growing ur- 
ban population. Every layman here 
knows how great a portion of his life 
is consumed by his work or career. 
Yet, this large portion of his life is 
frequently the least represented in 
the clergyman's pastoral responsi- 
bilities. Realizing that the clergyman 
cannot obtain a full understanding of 
our industrial society, it is possible for 
him to communicate more effectively 
with the members of his congregation 
and hopefully add to the significance 
of the role of the Church and the 

This summer seminarians will at- 
tend the Institute and work in this 
city and live together. The coopera- 
tion of several corporations here have 
made the Institute a reality and they 

?ril 1967 


have given unlimited support and par- 
ticipation in the planning. 

For the Laymen 

Helping the layman to understand, 
to express and to live daily his faith 
in Christ remains the most critical need 
of the Church. Allow me to highlight 
some of the ways this need has 
'been met. 

The Teacher Training Event in 
Greensboro was a simple attempt to 
support and to inform the Sunday 
School teachers and superintendents. 
While the Episcopal Churchwomen 
strive to understand their role and 
place in the life of the Church and 
world, nearly 400 of them attended 
the Spring Planning Days last spring. 
Our lay readers want to know what 
they can and cannot do when conduct- 
ing a service and more about the pe- 
culiar ministry they can perform in 
the Church's life and liturgy. Nearly 
100 lay readers attended our School 
for Lay Readers last year. This spring 
a School of Theology for AH Adults 
will be offered. 

While there is much talk about mis- 
sion today, there remains little under- 
standing and personal involvement. 
However, a clearer picture of what it 
is to be in a companion relationship 
with a country whose life is so dif- 
ferent from ours was made most vivid 
for the nineteen adults who went on 
the Bishop's tour of Panama this past 
summer and for the 18 young people 
who lived and worked there for sev- 
eral weeks. 

A large group of our laity some- 
times gets pushed over into the Sun- 
day evening twilight zone or the 
complaint department — our young 
people. While it is true that any mean- 
ingful young people's program must 
be the result of the needs, planning 
and execution of the local church, the 
Diocese can call them together for rec- 
ognition and praise. Perhaps the most 
delightful thing to take place in our 
Diocese was the Acolytes' Festival held 
at Duke University. Time Magazine 
was absolutely correct when it made 
the young people of America "The 
Man of the Year." I wish every per- 
son over 30 years of age could have 
had the sense of joy of standing at the 
altar in the Duke Chapel and looking 
out at more than 1,000 young male 
faces. A true picture of hope. 

Two large groups of laymen in our 
Diocese have particular needs requir- 
ing specialized ministries — our col- 

lege and our hospital communities. Our 
college chaplains serve in what many 
persons consider to be the most stra- 
tegic place in our society. If the col- 
lege student can have at least one 
meaningful confrontation with Chris- 
tianity during his college days, we 
should rejoice. 

The fear, loneliness and anxiety of 
the sick, especially when away from 
their home towns, is acute and pain- 
ful. Our hospital chaplain in Durham 
and Chapel Hill continues to minister 
to these people and their families. How 
Mr. Spong is able to minister so thor- 
oughly to the hundreds of non-resi- 
dent Episcopalians is remarkable. I 
bring to your attention the work of 
our second hospital chaplain in Char- 
lotte, the Reverend Merrill Miller. Be- 
sides serving as a resource person to 
the medical community, Mr. Miller is 
providing pastoral care to Episco- 
palians who come to the nine hospitals 
located in Charlotte, seeing at least 
530 different patients last year. 

For Clergy and Laity: 

Most of the needs of man are com- 

mon to all. Therefore, whenever pos-j 
sible your Diocese has sought to bring 
men, women and clergy together for 
study, worship and training. 

Church union is a subject very much! 
on the minds of many people. Are we;! 
going to unite with another denomi- 
nation? Why? What do we gain? Lose?? 
The first major conference in this Stated 
on Church union was sponsored by 
our Diocese last October. 

What is all this MRI business? Per- 
haps many of you attended one odi 
the convocational meetings conducted'' 
by Bishop Bayne and caught a glance! 
of what it means to be a part of th« 
global church where mutual responsi- 
bility and interdependence rest at the 
very core of life in Christ. 

But shouldn't worship be thi 
Church's main task, her top priority' 
If there is one thing you and so man} 
professional people tell us it is tha 
one function no other group in societ; 
can offer is the worship of Almight; 
God. The Holy Communion Service i 
the Church's unique and central ac 
tion. Therefore, well over 100 clerg 



and lay people presented to us last 
May a conference on The Church at 

The Program Budget for 1966 
amounted to $535,680. But, please 
note that most of what I have re- 
ported to you was not budgeted items 
at all. (Namely: The Lay School, 
Spring Planning Days, Teacher Train- 
ing, Bishop's Tour, Conference on 
Church Union, Acolytes' Festival, 
MRI Meetings and the Church at 
Worship Conference.) Some of this 
money came directly from funds made 
available to our Bishop. However, 
much of it was on a pay as you at- 
tend plan. Yes, another $1 10,000 came 
from you for these things. You can 
add to this figure another $27,405 
which many of you contributed 
through the budgets of the women, 
men and young people. Putting all 
of these amounts together gives us a 
a grand total of $675,000. That is 
a large sum of money. It has come 
easily from some pockets; with per- 
sonal sacrifice from others. Let us hope 
it has been used wisely and to the 
Glory of God. 

Your department heads — Peter 
Robinson, David Howe, Loren Mead, 
Martin Tilson, George London, Jack 
Gray, Bill Latta — and hundreds of 
others are to be thanked for the count- 
less hours they have spent arranging 
the program. Their willingness at all 
times to work for the good of the 
whole has been wonderful. 


Today, we shall look at needs for 
1967. The proposed program budget 
which already had been gone through 
with a fine tooth comb had $19,000 
cut from it because the money was 
not used. The amount of $38,000 more 
has been removed because of failures 
to accept quota assessments. But still 
it totals $525,608. A great deal of 
money! Briefly, this budget falls into 
8 divisions: 

$177,923 goes to pay quotas to our 
National Church Provincial 

Synod and the North Caro- 
lina Council of Churches. 

$132,930 goes for the work of the 
Department of Missions of 
the Diocese. 

$ 73,522 will be spent for work in 
our 33 college communities. 

$ 40,928 will go for salaries to the 
Director of Program his as- 
sistant and secretary, the 
Editor of The North Caro- 
lina Churchman, and the 
Director of Vade Mecum. 

$ 35,600 will be given to our owned 
or partly owned institutions. 

$ 34,020 will be used to provide pas- 
toral ministries in hospitals 
in Durham, Chapel Hill and 

$ 6,775 will be used as Contingency 
Fund and for the work, 
meetings and the like of all 
our departments, commit- 
tees and commissions. 

So many of us have adopted an at- 
titude of "hold the line" regarding our 
money. The year 1967 may be a very 
tight year financially. Our 1967 pro- 
gram budget has been cut to the bone 
in several places. Surely, the time has 
come for us to look again at priorities. 
We must be good stewards of man- 
power, time, abilities and money. The 
structure and organization must and 
will be reviewed. The proclamation 
must be examined. In other words — 
what are the needs? How can we meet 
them? Who is to do it? Maybe we 
must curtail or even eliminate certain 
services and programs during 1967. 
The people of our Diocese, you, have 
never failed to rise to a noble oc- 
casion or to contribute to a needy 
cause. This tradition shall continue. 
Let us take to heart our hopes and 
disappointments as they are expressed 
in our 1967 budget. We dare not be 
negligent nor extravagant. We must be 
faithful to our Lord and Saviour and 
find ways to make Him known in our 
lives and our secular society as we 
work corporately as a Diocese.

New Bishop Of Cuba 
Now Consecrated 

NEW YORK, N. Y. — The Rt. 
Rev. Stephen F. Bayne, Jr., director of 
the Overseas Department of the Epis- 
copal Church's Executive Council, 
has announced the consecration of the 
new Bishop of Cuba. He is the Rt. 
Rev. Jose Gonzalez Martinez who was 
consecrated Sunday, February 5, after 
his election by the Diocese in conven- 
tion February 4. 

The election was held under the di- 
rection of the Metropolitan Council, 
which was set up at the 1966 meeting 
of the House of Bishops. At that meet- 
ing Cuba was established as an au- 
tonomous diocese within the Anglican 
Communion "under the care and di- 
rection of the Metropolitan Council." 
It was formerly a missionary district 
of the Episcopal Church in the United 
States. Participants in the convention 
and consecrators were the Most Rev. 
Howard Hewlett Clark, Primate of all 
Canada; the Rt. Rev. Melchor Sau- 
cedo, Suffragan Bishop of Mexico, rep- 
resenting the President of the 9th 
Province, the Rt. Rev. Francisco Reus 
Froylan; and the Rt. Rev. John E. 
Swaby, Suffragan Bishop of Jamaica, 
representing the Archbishop of the 
West Indies, the Most Rev. Alan J. 

Bishop Gonzalez has served as 
Dean of Holy Trinity Cathedral since 
1962. Prior to that he was priest-in- 
charge of St. Paul's Church, Cama- 
guey. He was ordained deacon in June 
of 1943 and priest in February 1944. 
He then served parishes in Vertientes 
and Guantanamo. 

He attended DuBois Memorial 
Church Training School in Tennessee 
and Virginia Theological Seminary, 
Alexandria, Va. from which he received 
a Bachelor of Divinity Degree. 

The new Bishop is married to the 
former Graciela Milian.

Colorful Sewanee Tennis Coach 
Named To Tennis Hall of Fame 

SEWANEE, Tenn. — Sewanee's Dr. 
Gaston S. Bruton, a man of many inter- 
ests — ranging from mathematics to 
taking up tickets at home football 
games — has been selected for charter 
membership in the coaches' division of 
the Tennis Hall of Fame of the Helms 
Athletic Foundation. 

Bruton, provost of the University of 
the South and professor of mathe- 
matics, had been tennis coach at Se- 
wanee for 36 of the previous 40 years 
before his retirement in 1965. 

He is one of four tennis coaches 
selected for initial membership in the 
coaches' division of the Tennis Hall of 
Fame. The others are Earle Bortell, 
Georgia Tech; William Ackerman, 
UCLA; Edwin Faulkner, Swarthmore. 

Each will be given a Hall of Fame 
award and will have his name de- 
veloped upon the Tennis Hall of Fame 
trophy which is lodged in Helms Hall, 
Los Angeles. 

When Dr. Bruton retired as Se- 
wanee's tennis coach in 1965, his team 
presented three gifts to him. One was 
a silver pitcher. The others were 
championships of the Tennessee Inter- 
collegiate Athletic Conference (Se- 
wanee's 16th title in 27 tournaments) 
and the College Athletic Conference. 

The record of the 1965 team was 
11-3, bringing his 36-year record to 
219 wins, 113 losses and 13 ties. 

One might say that the story of 
modern tennis at Sewanee is the story 
of a teacher's hobby. When young 
Bruton came from Chapel Hill to Se- 
wanee in 1925, still working on his 
Ph.D., he taught math under the late 
General James Postell Jervey. 

He brought with him two cravings — 
handball and tennis. In the latter he 
was conquered at Sewanee only by one 
student, Southern Conference Champ 
Teddy Burwell, class of 1932. No one 
at Sewanee ever beat him in handball, 
and many tried. 

Bruton became "doctor" in 1932, 
the same year his protege Burwell be- 
came a Rhodes Scholar. He became 
head of the math department in 1945, 
dean of administration in 1952, and 
provost in 1961. 

In a community of versatile people, 
he has a reputation for wide-ranging 
interest. He is probably the ace ama- 


teur etymologist — expert on words — at 
Sewanee. He insists that math majors 
must study Shakespeare. His mind 
stores a mass of statistics. He is a shark 
at bridge. 

He looks forward to football seasons 
because he can take up tickets at the 
gate of Hardee Field. He just loves 
to take up tickets at the football field. 

He has been president of nearly 
everything at Sewanee which has such 
an office, from Phi Beta Kappa to the 
Civic Association. He has chaired the 
county school board and served as jus- 
tice of the peace. 

For recreation he memorizes things 
— anything but poetry, of which he is 
a vigorous one-man opposition, the 
author of two full-page "Why I hate" 
essays in the student newspaper. As 
an after-dinner speaker he leaves audi- 
ences weak with laughter at his jokes. 
He is one of the few men in Tennessee 
who can recite from memory the hun- 
dred-odd pages of the Masonic ritual. 

Back to the record book. 

Bruton-coached teams have won 
state championships (TIAC) in 1938, 
1939, 1940, 1941, 1942 (tie with 
Southwestern), 1943, (no tournaments 
in 1944, 1945, and 1946), 1947, 1949, 
1950, 1951, 1952, 1953, 1955, 1961, 
1962, 1963, and 1965. The longest 
undefeated string was racked up from 
1938 through 1947, a series of seven 
if we count the tie and skip the war 

That long dry spell from 1955 to 
1961 is explained thus. For five of 
those years desk-bound Bruton did not 
coach the team and during that period 
the Purple netmen won only 13 times 
and lost 35. 

The state singles championship has 
been won 16 times by a Bruton- 
coached player: '36 Shelton; '38 Guer- 
ry; '39 Guerry; '40 Reynolds; '41 
Jervey; '42 Jervey; '43 Elebash; (skip 
'44_'46) ; '47 Strang; '50 Warden; '51 
Warden; '52 Jackson; '54 White; '55 
Briggs; '56 Briggs; '60 George; and 
'61 George. Gordon Warden, champ 
in '50 and '51, is back at Sewanee as 
tennis coach. 

Bruton has coached the TIAC-win- 
ning doubles team eleven times. 

That Bruton does not lack instruc- 
tional talent the record makes clear. 

Youth Topic 
Of Meeting 
On Alcohol 

"Why are Americans so concerned 
with youth?" 

The question was posed by George 
L. Maddox, professor of sociology, 
Duke University, at the Mid-Atlantic 
Institute for Alcohol Studies at Roslyn 
Conference Center, Richmond, re- 

"Young people are a commentary 
on their parents. They are supposed to 
achieve something that we did not; 
they are a prophecy and an opportunity 
to correct our mistakes," he suggested. 

In two lectures, Dr. Maddox gave 
some concrete advice concerning youth 
and alcohol problems. The group also 
heard from Ruth Fox, MD, director 
of the National Council on Alcohol, 
New York. 

She advised adults to "pay attention 
to the young people; listen to them; 
take time to discuss matters with 

Dr. Fox said that adolescents should 
be given the facts about alcohol, howj 
it can be used and what the dangers 

"Parents should examine their own 
practice and not break their own rules. 
In our culture, we are too permissive 

However, his true genius is as a strate-'i 
gist. Time after time he has takenil 
into a tournament a team whose play-|* 
ers man for man were weaker than thefi 
opponent and by careful matching has; 
brought home the cup. 

If you query Bruton about tennis; 
scholarships, he will snort. "Why, ever 
when Sewanee gave football scholar- 
ships back in the 1930's we never gave 
tennis scholarships." He has never 
gone on the road to recruit players and 
the college has never offered financial 
aid for tennis talent. 

For an all-time, all-star tennis team 
at Sewanee, Bruton thinks he would 
pick Teddy Burwell, Alex Guerry. 
Alex Wellford, Hugh Shelton, Trapiei 
Jervey, and John Guerry. As alter- 
nates, he would pick John Strang, 
Alfred Allen, and Gordon Reynolds, 

Asked if at 63 he still plays hand- 
ball, he shakes his head sadly. "No : 
I fear even Alex Guerry could beat 

The Churchmoij H 

about drunkenness and should develop 
more sanctions against it," she said. 

Dr. Maddox advised: "We should 
Eocus not on the bottle but on the man 
arho is drinking. The crucial issue in 
dealing with young people about drink- 
ing is not about drinking itself. We 
iy to straighten them out rather than 
sympathize with their difficulties. We 
;an do little for them unless we like 
hem and have a feeling for being 

The Duke sociologist said that most 
foung people who drink do so regu- 
arly by the time they are 19. He said 
nore research is needed. "We should 
ilso learn more about abstainers; they 
nay be especially vulnerable and shift 
:asily to become problem drinkers." 

Ebbe C. Hoff, MD, PhD, who is 
nedical director of the Virginia State 
Division of Alcohol Studies and Re- 
labilitation, spoke on the motivation 
or drinking among adolescents. 

"There is a diminishing need of the 
)restige motive and increasing orien- 
ation toward achievement by them- 
elves. The need to conform is also 
lot so strong. 

"Rebellion and revolt are normal 
nit are now expressed more by spon- 
;oring causes than by drinking. Also, 
ilcohol as a means of rebellion only 
mrts oneself." 

He suggested that maybe young peo- 
)le do not want to grow up. "They 
;ay in their behaviour that the stan- 
lards of adults are fraudulent. They 
:quate maturity with dishonesty." 

Dr. Hoff said that young people 
oday are seeking more profound ex- 
)eriences than alcohol gives, and that 
hey tend to turn away from it as in- 

"We should be more concerned 
ibout the use of marijuana, LSD and 
)ther drugs," he said. 

Some other advice which he offered : 
'We should do what we can to make 
letter families. We should appreciate 
he father-mother leadership relation 
— for example, have a better balance 
)etween male and female teachers in 

"And we should try to deal with the 
)resent pediatric anarchy. Children are 
illowed to be tyrants. 

"In the Church, we should make a 
)etter effort to keep young people in 
he Church. First of all, the Church 
hould teach and exemplify the faith 
t professes."

Our Readers Write 

Editor, The Churchman: 

I have just returned from our EYC meeting at Burlington, and I wanted to 
take this opportunity to express my feelings about the EYC Convention which I 
attended this weekend. Even though I was not an official delegate, I feel I gained 
much from this experience, which was my first Convention. 

Bishop Fraser told the EYC he would like to see next year's convention seat 
500, and I hope if it is at all possible this will be done. If each delegate learned 
as much as I did (and I am sure many learned much more) and enjoyed them- 
selves as I did, it would be a shame to turn delegates down for lack of accom- 

I hope that you can help us in securing a large parish for our next convention. 
This was certainly a great trip, and I feel privileged I was able to attend.

Editor, The Churchman: 

If you are a part-singer in a choir and have been singing chants in unison 
because the arrangement is different from all other music, you should find a new 
interest by choosing a chant used regularly and write the syllables in music paper. 
The number of syllables vary in the measures. The bars printed within chants 
separate the measures. Count the syllables in each measure and make the neces- 
sary fractional notes. I believe all chants are in four-four time. This has been 
done and improves the sound of the music very much. If you succeed with one, 
you are certain to prepare other chants. You need not write in any notes except

'Continue In The Faith' Emphasized 
As Theme Of Churchwomen Meeting 

. . . (AH ECW Photos By Margaret Darst Smith) 

Churchman Editorial Board 

Continue in the Faith! — These 
words rang out again and again in 
Church of the Good Shepherd, Ra- 
leigh, as the Episcopal Churchwomen 
met for their 85th annual meeting in 
early April. 

Continue in the Faith! — This theme 
was first set out in the presidential ad- 
dress as Mrs. W. H. R. Jackson opened 
the sprightly and stimulating two-day 

I Continue in the Faith! — Again 
with these words Mrs. Jackson turned 
over to Mrs. Eugene Motsinger the 
presidential gavel and pendant at the 
end of the meeting. 

\ Continue in the Faith! — These 
words rang finally in the ears of the 
350 women as they left for home deeply 
touched by the closing meditation given 
by Father Anselmo Carral of Panama. 

Even the April weather managed to 
keep the faith, to be benign and co- 
operative. It was cool enough for wool 
suits and coats the first day . . . 
warm enough for silks and cottons the 
second . . . and fair and windless 
enough for even the most elaborately 
flowered hats on both days! 

To welcome her back to her own 
parish after three years as Diocesan 
president, the women of Good Shep- 
herd gave Vertie Jackson a corsage of 
rose-throated yellow orchids. They 
added the final fillip to the vastly be- 
coming rose organza hat, soft green 

and rose ensemble that she wore on 
Tuesday, and her sparkling yellow 
Wednesday outfit. 

Even the church was dressed for 
Spring. The creamy white of the freshly 
painted walls were perfect setting for 
the glowing colors of stained glass 
windows brought to their full glory by 
the bright April sun. 

Spring was again echoed — but this 
time with a note of sadness — in the 
pink and white flowers set against the 
white of the beautiful marble altar. 
They were given in remembrance of 
those churchwomen who had died this 
past year. Remembered in particular 
were two past presidents: Mrs. Henry 

. . . Army of Commitment 

Bourne of Tarboro, and Mrs. Edwin F. 
Lucas of Greensboro. 

Diocesan House was the setting 
Monday evening, April 3, for the quiet 
hour, dinner, and meeting of the Ex- 
ecutive Board. This year's traditional 
quiet hour will be long remembered 
for the challenging and encouraging 
words of Bishop Fraser's meditation on 
living without fear in a changing and 
revolutionary world. In the imposing 
conference room, presided over by 
the portraits of Bishops Penick and 
Baker, the women of St. Catherine's 
Chapter at Good Shepherd served an 
excellent dinner. 

Present for these activities were in- 
coming Churchwomen officers, who 
were formally installed by Bishop 
Fraser on Wednesday. They are Mrs. 
M. E. Motsinger, Jr., Roaring Gap, 
president; Mrs. Wiley H. Long, Jr., 
Roanoke Rapids, vice president; Mrs. 
Charles D. Calhoun, Elkin, secretary; 
Mrs. Robert E. Merritt, Mount Airy, 
secretary of Christian education; Mrs. 
Thomas H. Collins, Chapel Hill, secre- 
tary of promotion. 

Board members kidded Vertie Jack- 
son about her theme for the meeting, 
asking if she'd taken it from Adam 
Clayton Powell's, "Keep the faith, 
baby." Vertie assured them however 
that her choice had long preceded his. 

In her opening address Mrs. Jackson 
spoke of the change, the transition in 
the church and in the affairs of the 

May 1967 


Churchwomen. She urged that the or- 
ganized churchwomen evaluate their 
program and structure carefully. Quot- 
ing from the Talmud she asked them to 
"look ahead — you are not required 
to complete the task — neither can you 
lay it down." Continue in the faith, she 
concluded with perserverance, pa- 
tience, and prayer. 

Bishop Fraser addressed the women 
with his vision of laywomen and laymen 
— moving across the Diocese as a silent 
army of adult people committed to 
several things. Committed first, he said, 
to making regular Communion — com- 
mitted to Him as king and captain of 
this army. Committed secondly, he 
went on, to saying their prayers regu- 
larly. And third, to reading or studying 
just one good religious book a year. 
Not, he explained, a religious novel — 
but something that will stretch the 
mind, something that will give answers 
when children ask about God; some- 
thing with substance; something that 
will talk to you about the eternal na- 
ture of your life and soul. You have 
to be an informed Christian, he said, 
to bear witness in your life, or you 
have nothing to say. 

The Bishop's particular advice to the 
Churchwomen was to look to the lack 
of women under 30 in their parish or- 
ganizations (half the population, he 
noted is under 28, and half of those 
19 and older are married, most with 
children). They are most obvious, he 
noted, by their absence. Then he asked 
what has Christianity in the church to 
say to the working women — those 
who work away from home all day, 

. . . Mrs. Jackson to Mrs. Motsinger 

many with additional family duties to 
come home to. He noted a particular 
area of challenge — witnessing to what 
the church says as well as personal 
witness. "Does your neighbor know you 
believe in Jesus Christ, and how 
does she know it?" "I am hoping," he 
concluded, "that men and women will 
join each other and me in an all-out 
effort to make the church a live op- 
tion — a real witness to Jesus Christ 
— right where we are in North Caro- 

Mrs. James L. Godfrey of Chapel 
Hill, past president, and provincial rep- 
resentative to the General Division of 
Women's Work of the national Church, 

gave a stimulating talk reflecting 
thoughts on the future of Church- 
women. So many wanted copies that 
she is having it mimeographed and 
will be glad to send a copy to those 
who write her at 313 Hillcrest Rd., 
Chapel Hill, 27514. 

During the two-day session opening 
and noon-day prayers were led by the 
Rev. Louis C. Melcher, Jr., rector of 
the host church; the Rev. George 
Hampshire, St. Mark's, Raleigh; the 
Rev. Arthur Calloway, rector, St. Am- 
brose, Raleigh. The Rev. John Tucker 
assistant at Good Shepherd assisted 
with the Wednesday Communion. 

Convocation structure changes were 
approved by the meeting. Unanimous 
approval was given to the following 
proposal presented by Mrs. I. H. Man- 
ning, Durham chairman: 1. Convoca- 
tions serve a useful purpose and should 
be continued. 2. Spring Planning Days 
are helpful and. should be the chief 
meeting of the convocation. 3. It is not 
necessary for the convocation to have 
an officer to correspond to each di- 
ocesan officer. Therefore convoca- 
tions will elect only the following of- 
ficers: Chairman, vice-chairman, secre- 
tary-treasurer. 4. Convocation Quiet 
Days are valuable and should be con- 
tinued. 5. Board meeting of convo- 
cation officers and branch presidents 
shall be held each fall. 

The 86th annual meeting was invited 
to Church of the Holy Comforter, Bur- 
lington in 1968. The invitation, pre- 
sented by Mrs. William Scott, was 
gratefully and unanimously accepted.

In addition were three missionaries, 
an estimated 17 clergy and 96 visitors. 

Smash hit of the meeting was Father 
Anselmo Carral, chaplain of the Uni- 
versity Episcopal Center in Panama. 
(Just in case this might have slipped 
by someone, Panama has been our 
Companion Diocese for the past six 
years, which formal relationship will 
end with the General Convention in 
October. The student center has been 
one of the chief projects of the Church- 
women.) Father Carral is, in the first 
place, quite handsome, reasonably 
young, and completely charming. In 
addition to which he happens to have 
a charming accent, a delightful sense 

... A Special Guest 

of humor; is highly intelligent and an 
excellent speaker. So just imagine! 

In his address on the first afternoon 
he told of what he called the "miracle" 
of our companionship relation. How 
for the first three years we managed a 
rather "queer" relationship of bishop 
to bishop and money to money. How 
with the coming first of the Bryan 
family on a Christmas trip to Panama, 
then the 18 young people who spent a 
summer there working, the Bishop's 
tour, and the return visit of Pana- 
manian students here, — how from 
this getting to know each other, "to 
saying we love you, we care about you 
— this is the miracle. Now the trend 
has changed completely — now we 
have both you and your money." He 
spoke of the fact that much of this had 
come about because the money was 
given "without telling us what to do 
with it — you trusted us. Trusting and 
walking with us, you have not been 
paternalistic, you have trusted our 
judgment, shared our aspiration and 
expectations." He finished by saying 
that "I am eternally convinced that 
this 'family' which we have created 
will continue even though the formal 
relationship will end." I am witness to 
you that in Panama we will never for- 
get North Carolina, or this Diocese." 

In addition to the humour and charm 
shown by Father Carral in his early ad- 
dress, his beautiful closing meditation 
showed a deeper dedication. Ex- 
panding the theme, "Continue in the 
Faith." To continue, he said, meant 
to grow, to increase. First, to increase 
in zeal, in an interest in the welfare 

of others, the missionary part of the 
church. To be healthy, he went on, one 
must grow, and some of the signs 
of growth are increasing humility; in- 
creasing faith and love toward Jesus, 
not only intellectually but in a sincere 
desire to lead Christ-centered lives. 
Another sign, he said, is increase in 
charity or love, in respect for the rights 
of others. And increase in spiritual 
growth, he pointed out, by diligent use 
of private means of grace such as read- 
ing the scriptures, prayer, meditation, 
self evaluation . . . together with cor- 
porate worship, and above all the 
Eucharist. And the end of all this, he 
concluded is "love given completely — 
no strings attached." 

A glimpse of another fascinating 
part of the world came when the Rev. 

Describes Church in Cuba 

Moy 1967 

Bart Sherman, rector of St. Philip's, 
Durham, reported on his recent trip to 
Hong Kong. Here he attended the con- 
secration of his brother-in-law as 
Bishop of Hong Kong, and took with 
him as he went a gift of $5,000 to 
that Diocese from ours. His talk was 
wound about a series of color slides 
showing the work of the church there 
and much about the life of that crowded 
and colorful country. He may yet live 
to regret the statement that he made 
about being available for a fuller pro- 
gram — showing all 150 of his slides. 
— at anyone's invitation. 

The big ballroom of the Sir Walter 
Hotel was well filled on Tuesday eve- 
ning for the Fellowship Dinner. Bishop 
and Mrs. Moore were presented to the 
women by Mrs. John D. Elliot of St. 
Martin's, Charlotte. In a delightful 
presentation Mrs. Elliot gave the 
women a "gift from St. Martin's, — 
with open hands, but a real reluctance 
and touch of regret; It's not round, she 
said, not square; not large nor over- 
bearing — but labeled "with caution 
— especially if you want to sit com- 
fortably with the church door closed." 
We bring it to you with great love, 
she said, and with "the utterly love- 
able Florence." 

Missionaries from the Diocese pre- 
sented at the dinner were first Mrs. 
Henry Chapman of Asheville, who 
though retired still works with shut-ins 
and teaches retarded children; Sister 
Adelaide of All Saints' Convent, 
Catonsville, Md.; and the Rev. Hall 
Partrick, home from Mexico. The 
mother of Bishop Gordon of Alaska 
and Jocelyn Gordon of India, Mrs. 
W. J. Gordon of Spray; and Mrs. Nor-

Heads of the Diocesan institutions 
were recognized — St. Mary's, Dr.

chaplain, and their wives; Dr. and Mrs.

Sewanee Seniors 
Take Grad Exam 

SEWANEE, TENN. — Of 150 
seniors at the University of the South, 
all of whom recently took the Gradu- 
ate Record Examination standardized 
all over the United States, 17 were 
cited by Dean John M. Webb as at- 
taining scores above the 95th per- 
centile for the nation as a whole. 

"I am particularly pleased at the 
fine record our men made in the 
sciences. This shows that though this 
is a liberal arts college, preparation 
in the sciences here is second to none," 
Dean Webb said. 

Six biologists scored above 700 
(98th percentile) in their achievement 
tests, Dean Webb pointed out. The 19 
biology majors scored an average of 
644 on the achievement test, which is 
equal to the 92nd percentile. 

The three mathematics majors aver- 
aged 780, equal to the 96th percen- 
tile. One of these scored 950 and an- 
other scored 770. 

The one physics student scored 780, 
which is equal to the 99th percentile. 

A list of the high-scoring students 
included the following: 

Robert Braxton Flye, Jr., son of Mr. 
and Mrs. Braxton Flye of 113 W. 
Drewry Lane, Raleigh, a member of 
Beta Theta Pi fraternity and major in 
political science; and 

Donald Lee Garren, son of Mrs. 
Annie Bryson Garren of Brevard, 
a member of Delta Tau Delta Fra- 
ternity, and a mathematics major.

without a flaw. Mrs. Godfrey Che- 
shire, Jr., chaired the group with as- 
sists from the branch president, Mrs. 
Simmons Andrews; Mrs. Ruffin Bailey; 
Mrs. Roger Debnam; Mrs. William Al- 
dridge, Jr.; Mrs. William C. Wilson; 
Mrs. .Staton Inscoe; Mrs. Richard 
Stack; Mrs. Alex Andrews; Mrs. Trent 
Ragland, Jr.; Mrs. George London; 
Mrs. William Dodge, Jr., Mrs. Albert 
Bass, Jr., Mrs. Paul Hoch; and Miss 
Elizabeth Johnson. Not to mention the 
regular church staff, Miss Annie Webb, 
the Rev. Louis C. Melcher, Jr., the 
Rev. John W. Tucker, and Percy and 
Irene. In her report from the Com- 
mittee on Courtesy Mrs. Elmer Dud- 
ley of Charlotte said: "We have basked 
in delightful graciousness and hospi- 
tality — the result of endless hours 
of behind-the scenes preparation." 

Dedication of the kneelers for the 
Bishop's Chapel at Diocesan House 
came at the close of the first after- 
noon's business. Buses took the women 
to Diocesan House where in the chapel 
Bishop Fraser and the Rev. Charles 
Greene led a service of presentation. 
Given by the Churchwomen, and 
worked by some 67 of them, the de- 
sign on the needlepoint kneelers repre- 
sent every congregation in the Diocese. 
Mrs. Phil Mast of Burlington designed 
the cushions. Mrs. M. E. Motsinger was 
chairman of the committee for the 
kneelers. Here are two of the prayers 
used in the service: 

"O God, the strength of all who put 
their trust in thee: We beseech thee so 
to bless these kneelers, fashioned in the 
name of thine only begotten Son, and 
in honor of the blessed Saints, Apostles 
and Martyrs, that all who behold them 
with devotion may have strength and 
courage to follow their holy examples; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen." 

"O God, who by the blessing of thy 
Holy Spirit dost give to some persons 
the talent of artistry; we beseech thee 
to send thy grace upon those who have 
generously shared that talent by making 
with their hands these kneelers now 
placed in this Chapel. May all who 
pray here be drawn closer to thy holy 
laws and receive more abundantly thy 
divine love; through Jesus Christ our 
Lord. Amen."

The Tar Heel DioSCENE 


Churchman Editorial Board 
Sabbatical — The Rev. Thorn W. 
Blair, rector of Christ Church, Char- 
lotte, and Mrs. Blair, left on Easter 
Sunday afternoon for a sabbatical in 
Europe. From the church's "Glad Tid- 
ings," Mr. Blair says: "We will fly to 
Germany and there pick up a car. We 
will drive for the remainder of the 
trip. During April and May our in- 
tention is to travel, starting in Italy and 
ending in Scandinavia. We will then go 
to Geneva, where later in June I will 
participate in a conference on the mis- 
sion of the Church, as one of 55 dele- 
gates representing all areas of the 
world and all faiths. In July I will study 
at Oxford, and return by ship, being 
back in Charlotte by August 12. I be- 
lieve this is a chance for us to pull out 
of things for awhile, see that part of 
the globe from which our culture 
springs, gain a broader background 
against which to view our own im- 
mediate situation in Charlotte, and re- 
turn refreshed and perhaps better 
equipped for the job." 

Boxes — From the bulletin of St. An- 
drew's, Greensboro, we find this note 
on the ballot boxes used at the election 
of the suffragan. "Those who noticed 
the reference in the Churchman to 'the 
ballot boxes — four small boxes of 
shiny brown wood, much like miniature 
cedar chests' used for the election of 
the Suffragan Bishop at the Diocesan 
Convention, may like to know that 
the four new ballot boxes were made 
of cedar by the senior warden of St. 
Andrew's, R. Winston Bell, who knew 
that it was our rector's responsibility 
as secretary of the Diocese to furnish 
ballots and ballot boxes for the elec- 
tion." The Rev. Carl H. Herman is 
rector of St. Andrew's. 

Clergy Changes: The Rev. Har- 
old W. Payne has gone to St. Andrew's, 
Haw River, and the Church Center, 
Burlington, from Christ Church, Wal- 
nut Cove, and St. Philip's, Germanton. 
The Rev. Charles M. Riddle, III, has 
been given the additional work of 
priest-in-charge of St. Luke's, Tarboro, 
He is rector of Calvary, Tarboro. 

St. Christopher's — It will be inter- 
esting to note from later bulletins just 

HONORED— Louis V. Sutton, Church 
of the Good Shepherd at Raleigh, was 
honored recently by being selected 
"Man of the South" for 1967. The 
honor came at a dinner in the Capital 
City. The only other Tar Heel so desig- 
nated is Norman A. Cocke, Christ 
Church, Charlotte. Sutton has served 
as head of Carolina Power and Light 
Company for several decades. 

how much financial help St. Christo- 
pher's (San Christobal in Spanish) in 
Rio Abajo, Panama, will receive from 
special Easter and Lenten offerings and 
other sources. This comes in response 
to a special appeal from the national 
church and our own Diocese to fill a 
special need in the Diocese of Panama 
where a parish has taken initiative in 
providing basic education in a slum 
area where children otherwise would 
have no education. Christ Church, 
Charlotte, has given $12,000 to this 
parish already. A report will come in 
the next Churchman on how much 
has come in. 

Narrated Gospel — A number of 
churches in the Diocese note that they 
used the Palm Sunday Gospel at the 
Communion in special narrative form. 
This was prepared by the Diocesan 
Commission on Worship and church 
music and approved by Bishop Fraser. 
Among the churches using this were 
Epiphany, Leaksville; Holy Trinity, 
Greensboro, and St. Mark's, Raleigh, 
and St. Titus, Durham. One of the 
clergy serves as narrator, with addi- 
tional readers from the choir or con- 
gregation, and with the choir and 

congregation reading other parts in 

Kiss of Peace — Another unusual 
"liturgical action" was noted at Church 
of the Holy Family, Chapel Hill. 
Known as "The Kiss of Peace" or "The 
Peace," it is, according to that church's 
bulletin, an ancient part of the celebra- 
tion of the Holy Communion, which 
has been dropped from most Western 
churches. "This action has been redis- 
covered through the Church of South 
India, and it is suggested in the pro- 
posed revision of the American Prayer 
Book service. It symbolizes in a sacra- 
mental way the bonds of unity, peace, 
and love that God intends for His 
people in the Church. Its administra- 
tion: After the sermon the ushers come 
to the altar rail to receive the peace 
then give the peace to the end person 
on each pew who will then give it to 
the person next to him (and so on 
until all have received the peace). The 
peace consists of a hand-clasp. The 
"giver" of the peace says: "The peace 
of the Lord be with you." The "Re- 
ceiver" replies "And with thy spirit." 
The Rev. Loren Mead is rector of 
Church of the Holy Family. 

Youth Program — The youth groups 
at St. Andrew's, Greensboro this Palm 
Sunday repeated an unusual and in- 
teresting service they have had for the 
last several years. It is a "supper, con- 
sisting of food symbolizing the life of 
simplicity of our Lord and some tra- 
ditional dishes of medieval English 
custom, served by the clergy. The meal 
is eaten in silence and is followed by 
a meditation. After prayer and blessing 
all depart in silence." 

Parish Hall — St. James', Kannapolis, 
is making plans for a new parish hall. 
They are currently raising funds to 
move to the church grounds a building 
given by Mr. F. G. Hilbish. The vestry 
noted it was needed as a place for 
social events, for a proposed scout 
troop, and kindergarten, and "as a sign 
to ourselves and others that we mean 
business in Kannapolis and are build- 
ing for the future." The Rev. Harry A. 
Woggon is priest-in-charge. 

Dedication — St. Anne's Church, 
Winston-Salem, held a service of dedi-
